Hashtag 140cuse

Posted on the 20 April 2012 by Maria Snyder @MariaConsulting

#140cuse, the 140 characters real time web conference held at Syracuse University on April 19, 2012 trended on Twitter. I was there. I participated via tweets, updates and posts.

The success of the #140cuse conference was due to a core group of amazing talents at Syracuse University’s iSchool, Professor of social media, Anthony Rotolo @rotolo was the MC, Kelly Lux @kellylux head of CMGR and social media strategist of the iSchool sent iSchool tweets, David Rosen @dhrosen was the conference organizer and invited me, lastly Jeff Keni Pulver @jeffpulver the producer of the #140conf who spoke.

I was enlightened, surprised, humored and engaged in dialog at the #140cuse event, all within five minutes of the conference start. My goals of meeting new people and learning from innovators were easily met. I was most impressed by the range of talented speakers there from Alexis Ohanian @kn0thing to the local talent Matt Mulcahy @MattMulcahy who sat next to me for a brief period of time.

What advice can I give you? Register early for next years conference. I will. This years #140cuse conference success is history. Find out more at
