The speakers were Gregory Marler, Bernelle Verster, Christine Karch. Despite reading all (well, almost) the messages that come through the Osmf-talk mailing list and following the OSM Telegram group, I don’t think I recall ever seeing their names in the discussions. This shows to me that I am not aware of voices of some of the people who clearly contribute a lot of time and effort to OSM and OSMF and are probably among the most productive community members. I wonder if others have similar impressions? Is it perhaps that OSM and OSMF conversations are fragmented through so many channels that I simply don’t realize how many people out there are having important conversations that I just miss?

Very useful and refreshing talk, dense with great points. I’m particularly interested in one of the dichotomies discussed:
free-form tagging <-> need better data consistency
I’m reminded of an article I came across a while ago that I’m sure has a lesson in it, somewhere: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/a3mm4z/the-rise-and-demise-of-rss
