So, are financial institutions and other bright people (not me) actually using your XBRL filings?

It’s agreed. For public companies, the transition to XBRL has been an emotional and expensive* road. Additionally, it feels like we’ve been talking about it for years; in fact I hosted my first XBRL webcast back in 2003. It’s 2012 and XBRL is a reality and a regulation.

This leads us to the question is anyone on Wall Street and the business analytics side of the data flow using XBRL? The short answer is “yes.”

The long answer is let your XBRL Geek Flag fly and watch this video of yesterday’s XBRL and Financial Analysis Technology Conference presented by XBRL.US and The NYSSA – New York Society of Security Analysts.
