Jeff Pulver was in Montreal last week for Webcom 2010. If you’re a social media fan, Jeff Pulver needs no introduction. Haven’t heard of him? Now is the time to pay attention!

Pulver created the famous international 140 Character Conference – commonly referred to as #140conf – a platform for the worldwide twitter community to listen, connect, share and engage with each other.

As any good evangelist, Pulver has been spreading the good word about Twitter and exploring the effects of the real-time Internet on humanity and business.

Interestingly, Jeff and I connected on a real soul level during the conference and we ended up spending a fair amount of good times…à la Montreal!

Here’s Jeff at Victoria Square posing in front of an original arch by Art Nouveau designer Hector Guimard –a genuine Paris Metro station entrance that was a gift to Montreal from the French capital’s transit authority.

For lunch we ate delicious salmon tartares at Holder, then headed to Da Emma for dinner after the conference.  Da Emma is located in the basement of what used to be Montreal’s woman’s prison – but worry not, it is now a most yummy Italian restaurant with a solid wine list and beautiful outdoor patio.

As you know, there’s always a cool concert going on in Montreal, so I took Jeff to Le National to see soul singer Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings perform. Here is Jeff, happy as can be.

Finally, we hit the newly opened Candi Bar for some drinks and good music. I am also very pleased to announce that Jeff Pulver will soon be hosting a pan-Canadian 140 Character Conference tour, that will be taking him back to Montreal very soon!

In the meantime, connect with Jeff on Twitter or read his blog – and thank me later.
