100 Million Edits to OpenStreetMap! The collective contribution of nearly 1 billion features globally over 16 years, by over 1.5 million mappers. Changeset 100,000,000 was uploaded by user Lamine Ndiaye, adding buildings in Nianiane, Sénégal. https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2021/02/25/100-million-edits-to-openstreetmap/
I had a fantastic time at my first #hacker camp in Germany in Aug 2019 (#cccamp19 @email@example.com). I eagerly booked tickets for @EMFCamp@twitter.com in England for 2020. Cancelled cause of #corona obviously. @MCH2021@twitter.com in the Netherlands has been cancelled too. 😢
#Nonbinary is confusing af what do you mean they don't go by he or she what else am I supposed to call them
A journalist emailed me months ago asking if they could ask me some questions about corporate influence in OSM. I said sure, had a nice chat with them. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-02-19/openstreetmap-charts-a-controversial-new-direction is the resulting article that came out today. I think it is a factual and balanced article overall and I struggle to understand why people throw disparaging remarks at me on Twitter. I'm quoted saying that corporate mappers don't map for the same reasons as the rest of us - that's obvious right? They get paid, we don't?
I've started an #OSM discussion, to try to hammer out how to add it to OSM. Reply to that mailing list, or here, or whatever.
