#140Conf Returns to LA – 9/23/13

Jeff & DebI will be hosting #140LA13: The Rise of Listening in the Era of Social Media, along with my friend Jeff Pulver, as part of Social Media Week LA (#SMW140LA), on Monday, September 23, 6:30 – 9:30pm, at Cross Campus, 820 Broadway, Santa Monica.

Jeff Pulver, creator of  the 140 Conference/State of Now, is a pioneer of the VoIP industry, a globally renowned thought leader, author, and entrepreneur. In 1995 Jeff defined “VON” to stand for Voice/Video on the Net and continues today to contribute words to both the telecom and social media vernacular. He is the founder of Free World Dialup (FWD), the VON Coalition, Vivox and others, and is the co-founder of Zula and VoIP provider, Vonage.

During #140LA13 we will explore the art of listening and why it matters, how companies are listening in 2013, the importance of listening to yourself and your audience, and more! In #140conf-style, there will be several individual talks and panels. We will have California Monster SaladsHubert’s Lemonade, and snacks.
