Recapping Emerson Exchange 2009

I spent the weekend catching my breath after an exciting Emerson Exchange conference last week. I thought I’d give you a roundup on all the news I could find.

First, the real-time Twitter feed on the tag, #EMRex we established seems to be a great success. Here’s an archive in three parts of the tweets during the event (part 1, part 2, and part 3). The Read-out Instrumentation Signpost blog has a great recap and captured these Twitter stats (originally developed by Emerson’s Aaron Crews):

#EMRex tweeters
99 active participants
950 tweets

#EMRex top tweeters:
@EmersonExchange (142)
@RuneReppenhagen (50)
@JimCahill (44)
@MikeBoudreaux (38)
@nancybartels (36)
@timalosi (28)

The long tail (bottom 80%) of twitter users accounted for more than 30% of the total volume.

If you have a Twitter account and want to follow the folks that made these numbers a reality, visit the Emerson Exchange group in TweepML.
