— #140conf12. Today is the first day of the two-day State of Now Conference, or #140conf, in New York City. The gathering “explores the effects of the real-time Internet on both business and ‘me’ the people,” according to its website. #SocialSmarts followers will take note that today’s schedule included a session on tech and young people (“Our kids will spend the rest of their lives in the future: Are we getting them ready?”), and tomorrow’s includes sessions on tech-savvy teens, educators and parents. If you’re just finding out about this now and it’s too late to attend, comb through the schedule for Twitter handles, follow the hashtag #140conf12 and build your own conference experience.
