As you may know, a couple of months ago I gave a talk at the #140conf in NYC about Tweet Your Prayers @TheKotel. I think the talk went well; I got laughs, applause, and hugs. I hope to have a video of my talk up soon, and in the meanwhile, I’d like to share a few photos from the event. These were taken by Amanda McCormick a.k.a. Jellybean Boom (flickr page, Twitter). These photos are published here with Amanda’s permission, and more can be found at Amanda’s flickr page.
Amanda has also written a blog post about my talk (read it here), here’s an excerpt:
I certainly was taken by surprise by this idea of “Tweet your prayers” and the presentation of it. I’m not religious, but I found the creativity of this idea very appealing indeed. And Alon Nil framed it in a quite witty and self-deprecating way as the “anti-startup.”
She went on to write:
But his testimonials of people who’s lives had been improved by participating in his service were moving, too, prompting my deep appreciation of the creativity that he has applied to Twitter.
So, thanks a lot to Amanda for the blog post and of course the photos, and I hope to have a video of my talk up soon!
