Social Media 140Conf Road Trip to make stop over in Dayton, Ohio

DAYTON – Blind Bob’s in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio will be hosting Jeff Pulver, Internet celebrity and 140 Character Conference organizer this coming Sunday. Dayton was selected early on as one of the stop-over cities by Pulver during his road trip leading up to the Detroit 140conf in October, 2010.

The Meet Up is scheduled for August 22 from 3:00-5:00pm. Attendees work in many fields of interest, including technology, youth sports tournaments, photography, journalism and business. The list of attendees is available on line, in real time at

According to Pulver, he tweeted out a request several weeks ago for places to stop on his road trip. Several dozen local Dayton twitterers replied back with pleas to stop in Dayton. Within minutes, Pulver decided that Dayton, Ohio was on his 140conf Road Trip map.

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 web sites and Internet tools. Leading the charge in the Dayton Area is a group known as New Media Dayton which hosts regular “tweet ups” at local restaurants.
