Visible Banking Twitter Directory: Tweeple @ #Finovate 2009 in NYC

Finovate2009-LogoAs you all know, I very much look forward to participate tomy third finovate event.

Based on my experience, Finovate is one of the conferences with the best live coverage on twitter. I am confident #finovate will become one of twitter’s trending topics on Tuesday. Stay tuned!

I thought it would be valuable to flag all the tweeple presenting, attending, and covering Finovate 2009 from NYC. This list will contain only the people in the room.

Please find below more info on my approach to create the list.
1. I searched twitter for the demoing companies name (people search)
2. I searched twitter for the presenters name (people search)
3. I searched twitter for any updates including “#finovate” or “finovate
4. I added a few tweeple I knew would attend the event

To give even more visibility to all those tweeple, I also searched linkedin for their public profile. When available, I added a link to their name.

I regrouped the participants in 4 key categories:
* Demoing companies
* Media (press, bloggers, journalists, pr)
* Delegates – Financial Institutions (banks, credit unions, financial services firms, insurance firms, VCs)
* Delegates – Others (consultants, startups, vendors, etc…)

I need your feedback!
Before spending any more time populating the list, could you please tell me how valuable such a list would be to you?
This is a work in progress. I need your help to make it comprehensive. If you were attending too and you are not including in the list, please leave a comment with all the required information.

Please follow  Jim Bruene and Eric Mattson on netbankerericmattson andfinovate.
