Method used to count tweets: Twitter search, omitting results obviously from before/after workshop start/end by timestamp, omitting Tumblr cross-tweet.

If I'm missing any other *web* annotations created by workshop attendees during the workshop itself, please reply and link to them so I can update these stats.

There was lots of annotation use-case *talk* at the workshop, but was the actual annotation *walk* during the ~8 hour workshop?

260 tweet annotations
  2 non-tweet annotations (hackpad, tumblr)

Tweet "comments" were the 99% use-case of web annotations.

This is what I previously* meant by High Frequency Annotations (HFAs).

When we measure what workshop participants *did* as opposed to what they *said* they wanted, these comments (posted as tweets) about the event (using a hashtag as a proxy event GUID reference) were the most frequent type of web annotation made by attendees.

Not counted, but would make for interesting additional data:
Second-order annotations of those tweets, e.g.:
* # of retweets: a full requote of a comment
* # of favorites: like +1/starring a comment
* # of replies: comments on comments
of those 260 tweets.
