Transcript of my twitterview with the CME

Since the blog has been very quiet of late, here is the transcript of the twitterview I have just finished where I discussed social media, technology trends in the trading world and football with the CME

CMEGroup: @tobybryans Good afternoon and thank you for joining us. Let’s start with you describing your role at Schneider Trading #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup It’s my pleasure! I have two roles: Technical Exchange Liaison and Strategic Technologist. #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup I make sure comms between Exchanges and ISVs & our technical departments run smooth & both sides are always up to date #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup I also keep an eye on current technology trends to see if there is anything of interest to our business #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans speaking of staying up to date – how do technology trends affect your business? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Technology immensely important for our edge. We’re always looking for better and faster solutions for all our systems #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup We talk to exchanges too about how they can help improve their solutions for us (just ask Mark!) #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans We won’t ask which one you like working with the most ;) #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup I couldn’t possibly comment on that ;-) #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans You are a busy man for sure. So when did you join Twitter and why? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup I was at a BBC Backstage party when I first saw it in 2006 and I had no idea what it was but it intrigued me so I joined #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Obviously #twitter has exploded recently and has become a far more useful tool than just keeping in touch with friends! #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans So how do you use Twitter for work/Schneider? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Keeping up to date with tech, following the latest news, keeping in touch with and building new relationships. #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans What do you think traders can get out of #Twitter? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Up to date and immediate discussion of latest news and market events from around the world often before the main stream #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans You mentioned technology trends – are there any you want to say that Schneider is looking at? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup two big areas we’re looking at are virtualization and latency measurement with #correlix and #corvil #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans Two big trends for sure #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup absolutely, we’ve always been very good on latency but it’s got to the point where the old tools aren’t good enough #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans London is one of the world’s soccer/football capitals – care to admit who you support? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup HA! I was born in Wembley and so I saw close up how some football fans behave. Put me off for life… #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans Last question: do you want to make a prediction for how traders will use Social Media a year from now? #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup It will bring new diversity to how they currently communicate and for brokers expanding and messaging their client base. #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Given how pervasive access is becoming I think it’s going to be interesting for the regulators! #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans Great point re: regulators and community growth. We shall see #exchtalk

CMEGroup: @tobybryans Well you are a busy man & sure you have other exchanges to tend to. We appreciate your time and thank you again #exchtalk

tobybryans: @cmegroup Thank you! It’s been fun to be your second vict… er… interviewee! #exchtalk
