Please don't get tricked into buying anything this Black Friday. You don't need it.

I've got a crazy inclining to trace all the allotments in GB.

Wish me luck

How can we all despise landlords and yet there be no housing coops? Spread the love, spread the ownership, spread the future. Start a housing coop!

It is absolutely amazing that all the big consumers tech companies consume and contribute to we need to encourage there involvement.

To compare to again. Linux is the open kernel that has a lot of corporate use, involvement and financial support. is the open kernel without corporate involvement.

I don't want to contribute to libre kernel that nobody uses, I want to work on the libre kernel that EVERYONE uses.

OSM isn't just it's usable Open Data

I created a #JOSM Validator ruleset to warn of source=* tags on objects. It can be enabled directly in the JOSM preferences. #openstreetmap

is both releasing more and using formats...

Suggests they're not scared of OSM's data, but it's tooling and developer market share.

And that's just GB, not Northern Ireland (or Ireland, I ❤️ you), nor Guernsey where I added a bunch.

It's kinda difficult to align the numbers to houses after the fact. A survey with StreetComplete to re collect the address may be easier

Semi interestingly Westbury had addresses mapped, before buildings. Not seen that before.

There have been 153 defibs added in GB in the past month :)

Ended up adding 8 defibs today, wasn't expecting that many!

Just added 20 defibs in Guernsey :)

Thanks to local company, Submarine, for the data.

Yesterday I had a good session adding addresses in a local village. Still a bit to be done but got the bulk of it is sorted.

I'm now part of UK. Terrified but excited

AddressBase have a very hostile copyright structure, and a massive pay to play barrier. But could create a alternative for the people, by the people. It's not going to happen anytime soon, but it's inevitable.
