EDRM Update – October 2015

EDRM Update
Issue 26 – October 2015

We held our Fall Workshop in October, at Relativity Fest. This was a first for us – the first meeting held outside Minnesota and the first meeting held in conjunction with another event. We have a long list of to-do items coming out of the meeting, stay tuned!

We also released our first members-only content, a 5.5 GB Micro Dataset – and in response had the busiest day of web traffic in 11 years.
