Everyone has their own reason for contributing to OpenStreetMap. Maybe you wanted a better map for your favourite activity - hiking, cycling, skiing. Maybe you were using a site or device with OSM data, and found it lacking. Maybe a friend got you involved. Maybe you believe in our aims as an open project. Or maybe you just thought it was cool.
What was your reason?
I'm giving a talk at State of the Map US in just over a week, in which I'd like to share people's stories as to why they contribute. I'd love to hear yours.
