This was a great opportunity to find out how data is used in the music industry and perhaps what the future holds in terms of metedata requirements and use. The important question of whether data will be openly accessible in the future seem to be yet unclear but will depend on what kind of business models will succeed. In my opinion the industry as a whole would benefit more from open data than from closed isolated repositories.

In one room we had executives from the copyright industries alongside the next generation of technicians who collectively wield huge potential influence over the future of music. As such I thought it was odd - for all the lip-service paid to the supposed "passion" for music in the room, free Coldplay CDs notwithstanding - that the far-reaching impacts on music culture and the nature of the art itself were simply not discussed. Instead we got some interesting startup presentations, a few nuggets of fun data, and some pie-in-the-sky free market waffle from a VC about how marvellous it would be to build a distributed system which enables everyone to know the price of everything. It would have been nice to examine issues pertinent to the second half of the well-known adage which that idea evokes.

Coming from the music side, it seemed to jump from broad industry info and explanations of companies, straight into talk of Hadoop etc - would have been helpful for us newbies to have a bit more of an overview of the technology, the skills / techniques that data scientists use, to bridge that gap and so we can look at researching / hiring in those areas. Otherwise great speakers, interesting discussions and inspiring ideas.

Would have loved to come, too bad for the work-unfriendly time.
