Day one is winding down of the 140 Characters Conference held at the 92nd Street Y in New York city.

It was an exciting day which started with Miss America, Caressa Cameron introducing conference creator Jeff Pulver.

The theme for the twitter conference is the state of now. We heard from Donny Deutsch, Ivanka Trump, and Ann Curry, to name a few

Wine Library TV’s Gary Vaynerchuk said this would be his last live presentation. His last words on the?#140conf stage were “I hope to engage with every single one of you before I die.” Gary, please don’t go away. You have been an inspiration to those who tweet and video bloggers around the world.

MC Hammer truly stole the stage today. He talked about how he was an early adopter of the Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 worlds and uses twitter very strategically. He also said he didn’t like “ghost tweeters” and blocks people with negativity online and offline.

After a brief stop to the conference party tonight, I left early to get a good night’s sleep.

On Wednesday, day two will begin with two panels bright and early and then I will be making my appearance on stage along with Your Tango’s Tom Miller (best known as Tomfoolery) at 8:45am. This will be the first-ever dating panel at a 140 Conference. If you can’t join us in New York, the event will be streamed live at

I’ll be signing copies of my book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online in the Schmooze Lounge from 10:00 am – 10:45 am and will be reporting back with the highlights of day two.
