During the course of EMCWorld, we had the opportunity to work with the company Infomous to set up some custom clouds to monitor the Twitter discussion around #EMCWorld and @EMCBackup. You can check out the above cloud interactively on the web, and blow out content to read individual tweets, grouped together by keyword.
You may notice that “photooftheday” shows up quite frequently–this is actually because of the social media contest we had running through Twitter over the course of EMCWorld for the best EMC Backup and Archive pictures of conference participants (using the hashtag #photooftheday). You can see all the chosen winners on our EMC Backup and Archive Community, but here is one of the winners (with our Mike Ditka impersonator):
For more on EMC Backup Recovery Systems’s EMCWorld photos, visit Facebook–there sure were some good ones taken.
We also had the Infomous cloud displayed on a large plasma monitor in the center of show floor, as part of the Media Wall in the EMC Backup and Archive Backup Game Plan booth (the top right monitor in the below picture). Not only did we have social clouds running, but also had Bruno Mars videos playing (upper left) as well as our sports-themed product videos (center console).
By the way, the Bruno Mars show was great, even though I was in the back and didn’t see much :). If you want to see more (including much better shots from profession photographers up front), here ya go!
Can’t wait for next year already!
