Thinking you missed out on the first #140conf in the Pacific Northwest? Think again. We’ve got your #140confNW right here.

Today, the first #140conf in the Pacific Northwest is being held right here in our backyard—well or Aaron Hockley’s lawn—in Vancouver, Washington.

It’s a bit of momentous occasion as #140confNW—our own flavor of this well known conference—sweeps into town. And it’s only made more interesting by the fact that they’re focusing on the public sector’s use of social media—especially in times of crisis. But phooey. All of this groundbreaking stuff and you’re stuck there at your desk, missing it. Or are you?

Fact of the matter is, for all of the folks they’re managing to wedge into the venue, thousands more will be watching the event from the comfort of the Web browser. It only makes sense that you join them.

Beginning at 8 AM PT and continuing throughout the day, tune into Silicon Florist to see the magic of Joe Christensen at Blaze Streaming Media as he brings you all of the content from #140confNW.
