Omar Uddin, Founder of UVision Consulting, was invited by Jeff Pulver, host of #140conf, Co-Founder of Vonage one of the most important pioneers of VOIP, to talk about social activism, volunteerism and how social media drives change through the world during his presentation at the #140conf in DC on Thursday, June 17th, 2010.
Since the launch of the #140conf events, conferences have taken place in: New York City, Los Angeles, London and Tel Aviv. At these events the “charachters” of 140conf experience have explored the effects of Twitter on a wide range of topics including: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising, Politics, Fashion, Real Estate, Music, Education, Social Change, Public Safety and Public Diplomacy.
The #140conf events provide a platform for the worldwide twitter community to: listen, connect, share and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time internet on business. The schedule is always unique and fast paced. It is intended to provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation with the attending delegates. With most individual talks set to: 10 minutes; “Featured talks” 15 and the various panel discussions are set for 15 and 20 minutes. The take aways from this event will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the effects the real-time internet will have on both “we” the people, business and society.
The event was streamed live on UStream.
