People from 20 states and two foreign countries will be in Hutchinson on November 8 for the Small Town 2012 State of Now 140conf. You may wonder what that is, and I’ll admit, it’s hard to explain. But, if you can, just think of it as people coming from all over the place to explore how our world is different because we all live in the “state of now,” with media and the internet.
Topics will be wide ranging, but speakers will have only 10 minutes each to make their points. You can see the preliminary schedule here: http://smalltown2012.stateofnow.com/schedule.
Regular cost to attend is $100, and it’s worth every penny. But, there’s a discount code that can save you 60%, making your ticket cost only $40. When you register, use the code, “friendofST12” and your ticket will be only $40. Student tickets are only $14. You can register here: http://smalltown2012.stateofnow.com/register.
This is the third year for Hutchinson to host this conference. Other State of Now events have been held in New York, Tel Aviv, San Francisco and other large cities. I’m trying to say, this is a big deal. A really big deal. So, please come if at all possible. If you can’t come, please help spread the word. This is not just an event for techie people. It’s a fascinating look at the world and the people in it.
Come join in!
