Not usually do I look back, but this has been a fun path. Its been over 8 years since I accidentally hit the edit button on this interesting project called OpenStreetMap during my student years creating maps of India on Wikipedia.
There’s been some interesting incidents, people and epiphanies on this rather eventful journey, a spicy cocktail of open source, geography and life in India. My contemporary @geohacker and I were somehow sucked into this crazy world in our own ways in different places, our passion driven by this common conviction that being open is right, and that maps can change lives, and be beautiful and inspiring, just like art.
As it were to happen, both of our paths eventually intersect at this rather inspiring bunch of people who call themselves Mapbox. Both our journeys have been different, but there has probably been something in common. To speak our hearts and fighting this addiction with open source maps, we invite you for an open house at Mapbox Bengaluru.

See you there, bring those who are close, and open!
