Good. I’ve got your attention. I’m a big fan of Jeff Pulver and his 140 Characters Conferences which are all about Exploring the State of Now. I was planning on attending this coming week’s #140Conf event in New York City and very much looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I can’t make it. Here’s your chance.
Instead of selling my ticket (Disclosure: $140 value), I want to give it away. There’s a catch. But it’s an easy one. You’ve gotta want it. And you’ve gotta earn it.
Want my ticket? It’s yours. Just tell me why I should give it to you in the comments section of this post (and what a perfect time to subscribe to the bloggy-blog-blog, if you’ve not yet done that) (I’m nothing if not subtle). Make it pithy. Make it funny. Make it desperate. Make it sappy. I don’t care what strategy you use. I want a bonafide, put your thinking cap on, how am I gonna win this gal over kind of pitch. And, for the record, I’m not saying that what you spin has to be the truth, peeps, it just has to be good.
The conference is 4/20-21 and you can see the schedule, as well as the amazing speakers that Pulver has lined up, and follow the #140conf NYC 2010 Speaker list on Twitter, too.
C’mon. Have you got it in you? Oh, and I’m the democratic sort. I’ll definitely ask my wacky group of friends to weigh in on this. But the final decision rests with me. And, in just this one instance, I’ll refrain from being swayable (it’s a word if I say it is) by bribery. Wordsmithery and strategy are the two things that are going to win this one. Oh, and make it quick, as I’ll make my decision and notify the winner by 9pm CST on Sunday evening, April 18th.
What are you waiting for …. get busy!! Don’t disappoint me, either ….
