As a last minute entry to this whirlwind week, I’m headed to tonight’s TechKaraoke, as part of Jeff Pulver’s 140 Character Conference, which explores the disruptive nature of Twitter, “140 characters at a time”.

Says Jeff about the 140 Character Conference:

While the original scope of the event was to explore “the effects of twitter on: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising and (maybe) Politics”, the scope of the event has expanded and we will be covering these topics and a lot more. #140conf will be taking a look at twitter as a platform and will be taking a look at some of the industries which have been disrupted by the advent of twitter.

For the final night of this event, Mashable’s Brett Petersel (@brett on Twitter) has organized TechKaraoke, which is gonna be awesome! Tonight’s event will raise money for North Shore Animal League America, Inc, America’s largest no-kill animal shelter, is the largest hands on humane organization in the world. They rescue and give medical care to over 20,000 orphaned animals each year,

At tonight’s event, keenkong will match each dollar (up to $400) for every song sung at TechKaraoke. It’s recommended that you donate $1 for every song you sing ($2 if you rickroll) at FirstGiving. All money will be sent to the North Shore Animal League America and all FirstGiving donations are tax-deductible.

If this is up your alley, sign up now at and I’ll see you there!
