Tonight a lively crowd gathered at the Digital Science office in London for our first ever Spotlight event; which not only included a top panel of speakers, but lots of beer and pizza.

The Panel

What took place was a healthy discussion around open data, looking at the future of sharing data, the challenges and the possible opportunities.

The event was highly tweeted on #opendataspotlight, so we have put together a Storify that collates all of the online conversation into one place. Do stay tuned for a more detailed blog post summarising the discussion and issues raised.
