Blind Bob’s in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio will host Jeff Pulver, Internet celebrity and 140 Character Conference organizer, this coming Sunday, Aug. 22, 2010.
Dayton was selected as one of the stop-over cities by Pulver for his road trip leading up to the Detroit 140conf in October, 2010.
The Dayton meetup is scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. 5th St. in the Oregon District. Attendees work in many fields of interest, including technology, youth sports tournaments, photography, journalism and business.
You can RSVP and see who else is attending here.
Pulver is an internationally known technology leader is is co-founder of Vonage, the company that provides telephone service over the Internet.
Pulver asked followers on Twitter to suggest places to stop during his road trip. Several dozen Dayton-area residents replied back with pleas to stop in Dayton. Within minutes, Pulver decided that Dayton, Ohio was on his 140conf Road Trip map, along with Cleveland and Cincinnati.
Dayton is home to a growing community that uses social media for personal communication and business. Social media includes Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs and various other community websites and Internet tools. Leading the charge in the Dayton area is a group known as New Media Dayton (http://newmediadayton.com/) which hosts regular ‘tweetups’ at local restaurants to share ideas, techniques and build connections among participants.
