Understanding #Overpass, the API of #OpenStreetMap: https://hann.io/articles/2020/understanding-overpass.
Every now and then, we find this: a new user in OSM abusing the "name" tag. (User created patches of grass and a cycle track and described what they are… in the name tag.)
This is probably because iD has a prominent box for the name tag for almost everything.
I routinely make Overpass queries to spot mistakes like this in my area. Seems I will have to add more queries (e.g. a patch of grass AND a name → warning).

Who Invented the Mouse? Are You Sure?
If you ask most people who invented the mouse, they won’t know. Those that do know, will say that Doug Englebart did. In 1964 he had a box with two wheels that worked like a modern mouse as part of his work at Stanf… https://hackaday.com/2020/01/17/who-invented-the-mouse-are-you-sure/

I've been thinking that working on marketing for libre projects would be awesome!
Is there anyone on the fediverse I could talk to about getting a leg into that industry?
And I'm not talking about just drawings and illustrations but graphics, photoediting and videos, and finally ideas / marketing strategies.
I think I could be a great asset to projects out there.
