Today, Sept 20, 2011, around 140 people from small towns in 18 states and 3 countries will gather in Hutchinson, Kansas, to share ideas, and another 3,000 or so will tune in via live stream online.

It’s the 140 Characters Conference, the first and only high-tech conference to recognize the value of people in small towns and then locate the conference in a small town to share with them. People will share how they use tools like Twitter, Facebook, and much more, to change lives in education, business, nonprofits, volunteering, arts, agriculture and tourism.
If you weren’t able to make the trip in person, you can still join in online. The conference will be live streamed. I’m expecting it to be on the 140 Conference Events Ustream channel. As a back up, (and we always have a backup), check in on the 140 Conference homepage, and we’ll have a link there. To keep up with the speakers, check the schedule, but know we are likely to run behind.
