140 Characters Conference LA: Just the Pics

By Don Lafferty | Social Media

Nov 01

Thanks to Jeff Pulver, Jeffrey Hayzlett and a ton of other people for providing an awesome environment for connecting and sharing at the 140 Characters Conference: Exploring the State of NOW at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood last week.

Since almost everybody loves to look at themselves, I figured I’d start off by posting the pics I was able to take over the course of the conference. I’ll try to note everybody in each shot, but please feel free to correct me if I miss somebody or get something wrong.
