A few years ago I started a bi-weekly video chat for US mappers, called Mappy Hours. They were fun and varied, with topics ranging from tagging discussions to a presentation about OpenHistoricalMap and many things in between.
Then we all got busy and the Mappy Hours stopped. I was recently reminded about them on the OSM Slack channel, and I thought it would be nice to restart them. So here are the details of the first Mappy Hour:
Wednesday September 27 at 5:30pm Pacific Time
We used to use Google Hangouts, but there were problems with that: a limited number of video participants, you couldn’t call in, plugins.. There is no perfect solution but I have had success with Zoom so we will try that. You can either download the Zoom client or call in using your phone.
The topic for the first Mappy Hour will be State of the Map US. What are you looking forward to? Do you have a presentation you want to promote? Do you have ideas to make the conference even better than previous years? Let’s talk! Even if you are not planning to attend SOTM US, I invite you to attend: there will be plenty of time to talk about other things as well.
