Twitter View – Gartner Symposium in Cannes – Monday

by Elise Olding  |  November 8, 2010  |  1 Comment

Carol Rozwell, Deb Logan and I are monitoring the twitter stream from afar for the Gartner Symposium in Cannes (#gartnersym). According to Tweetronics as of 10pm (Cannes time) there were 1056 tweets from 324 users. For the size of the conference, that’s comparable to the volume of tweets and number of users at the US Symposium in Orlando.

Wordle is just a lot of fun and also gets a point across. Here’s a picture of the words mentioned most often today:


Highlights from today’s posts:  

Twittertaining! The most creative use of a hashtag (#):  

  • @MartinHowitt main problem with #gartnersym : too many interesting conversations happening to keep up with everything.  #explodingbrainsyndrome

A Short Summary: Some of the attendes have a wonderful ability to synthesize the day’s messages:

  • @fcharles: CIOs are coping with three new realities: unprecedented choice, a wild open world and a shift from outputs to outcomes
  • @CIO_Adam: good discussions came out of #gartnersym 2day, esp around CIO as a business leader rather than just a functional head

Thanks for the interaction today! Follow me on Twitter @eliseolding
