The #140conf events provide a platform to listen, connect, share and engage, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time internet on business and on “me” the people. The format at the #140conf events is unique: Individual talks are 10 minutes, keynotes are 15 minutes and panel discussions are no more than 20 minutes. At SXSW the format has been changed slightly to better fit into the SXSW schedule. Each of our sessions are set to run 15 minutes. At #140conf SXSW we will be taking a hard look at something Jeff Pulver calls “The State of NOW” and the continued effects the worldwide adoption of social communication platforms such as twitter is having on a number of industries. The sessions presented at SXSW are a sampling of the type of content one can expect to experience at our worldwide #140conf events. This proposal is to deliver 10 individual sessions, each of which will take place over 15 minutes during SXSW. These sessions will be offered consecutively during a 3 hour window. The take aways from #140conf @ SXSW 2012 will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the next wave of effects of the real-time Internet will have on business in 2012 and beyond.

the future of story telling with geo geller and with andy dixon as an example(ExConWithConvictions.com and IAMConvicted.com) is part of what i call a Social Sculpture, a treasure hunt, an exploration of experience, it is about my and our relationship to ourselves and the world we live in - storytelling as non-story story non-linear stories - also think of it as eaves dropping too more at http://SocialSculptures.com
Access to information, people, and movements via the internet has changed the way we behave, but has it fundamentally changed how we think or how our society thinks in tandem?
