Enron Night at Trampoline

By Trampoline Systems | Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

During development of the SONAR platform we needed a corpus of real enterprise data to road test the social network and theme extraction technologies. Jan hit on the bright idea of using the 200,000 internal Enron emails released into the public domain during the fraud hearings. However we found ourselves spending rather longer burrowing around in the emails than was strictly necessary for testing purposes. Also whenever we mentioned it to our friends they wanted to get their hands on it too. So in the end we decided it was simpler just to put the whole thing on the web and let anyone access it.

Never ones to do things by halves, we designated this evening “Enron Night”. At six o’clock we hosted a screening of the excellent documentary “Enron – the Smartest Guys in the Room”. Now, at half past nine, we’ve just pressed the big red button to launch the Enron Explorer. Get exploring here!
