We’re not really settling into a routine yet this summer, which is not necessarily a bad thing. My first summer mapping session was organised by somebody else (which makes a very pleasant change!) I already described the Olympic park mapping session in my last post. Check out my fast-farward JOSM video if you didn’t already. The last event was a humanitarian thing. I won’t go into details because you can read my HOT blog post all about it. Suffice to say it was definately a bit different, and pretty awesome. I also did an ODI blog post which talks about Open Data in Africa in general. Thanks to the ODI for… PIZZA!
It’s become apparent that a big bunch of OSMLondon people are booking places to be at SOTM-EU in Karlsruhe. So that’s going to be an awesome event. Sadly I won’t make it myself.
But speaking of big conferences, Wikimania is coming to London this year. I’m quite excited about that, but it’s making the August schedule look a bit hectic. The OpenStreetMap birthday party is listed as “fringe” event of the conference. And I’m currently pencilling in the week before that for my birthday BBQ in my back garden.
But TONIGHT is a relatively normal OpenStreetMap Mapping evening, by which I mean it’s one of the alternating pub meet-ups / mapping evenings. I’ve done the thing of suggesting a mapping demonstration for anyone who is interested. This will go ahead, since I have one person expressing an interest. That’s all it takes! But obviously having a few more people walk around with us would be good. So if you’re in London and wanting to learn about OpenStreetMap, or know somebody who fits that description…
Get on board with tonight’s mapping action!
