The Nairobi 140 Character Conference: #140conf

Yesterday the I attended the second Nairobi 140 Character Conference (#140conf) at the Nailab. I almost missed the event since the publicity was fairly limited around and I only found out about via a mailing list. Nevertheless, I was also invited by Soud Hyder who was part of the organizing team that put the event together (Thanks Soud!). It started off somewhat late but eventually was on a roll as the Nailab filled up with many of Kenya’s leading “Twitterati” (including yours truly!).

Going into more detail, 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 event yesterday was focused on exploring social causes on the web within a Kenyan context. Presentations we’re made by an interesting and diverse range of presenters including Marvin Tumbo, Juliana Rotich, and Paula Kahumbu.

Here is a link to the podcast of the panel session that was comprised of Juliana Rotich, Moses Kemibaro (me), Paula Kahumbu, Victor Ngeny and chaired by Aly Khan Satchu courtesy of Soud Hyder HERE>

    I almost missed this as well. Found out about it while checking my Twitter on the day of the event and only managed to catch the last hour of it.
    Still, very enlightening stuff.

    There should definitely be more of these.
