I'm attending my first State of the Map conference and really enjoying the discussions on community in OpenStreetMap, from the dynamics of discussion threads, to in-person meetups, to the type of editing people do. The term "power mapper" is often used to describe people who directly make edits to OpenStreetMap. I'm interested in a definition of "power mappers" that includes evangelizing, teaching, and engaging more people with OpenStreetMap.
Great day at "the geopalace" with 11 mappers participating at the US Spring Editathon. Lots of maproulette.org lane challenge, OpenDRI Nepal, testing the new ID editor, discussing upcoming outings with walking papers, snacking, drinking, and and "lifewinning" with Ingrid ;)
