Indeed the https://switch2osm.org/ site has been undergoing a revamp lately. Check it out and link people to it if they need to switch to OpenStreetMap!https://twitter.com/SteveC/status/1205104584714272768
There's a #JOSM plugin to continue the 'Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett' message?

@rory @all Just if you know one: Looking for an Rust example with key-down/up and drawing lines etc. on a window (linux/macOS)
The Philippines' 1st ("ata") LGBTQI+ #OpenStreetMap Mapping Party by MAP BEKS
I still this is awesome.
Inspired by the traditional Advent calendar, #PoliMappers is going to publish a simple mapping challenge everyday for the entire month of December 2019, with the purpose of contributing to #OpenStreetMap while having fun: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/PoliMappers/Adventures2019.
I'm a candidate for the #OpenStreetMap Foundation board. I'll do a video chat/conference if you wanna ask me anything. Details here:
The participants seems to have enjoyed the mapping event, with one person quipping they wished the event was much longer, to maximise their effort of being present for the day.
Their SNS: nitter.net/mapbeks
During the morning, they were mapping #hiv testing and counseling facilities.
It was a great day for #MapaTime with new and old mappers.
I am tempted to do an open video conference session (what songs have called "office hours") for an AMA or my #OSMF candidacy. Would people be interested to dial in and chat?
OpenStreetMap Foundation politics
No offense to @migurski on this, and his extensive previous work with considerably better behaved corporate entities with interests in OSM. I have a hard time believing that he wouldn’t become a proxy for FB, to the detriment of OSM’s interests and his own personal interests. Especially fresh on the heels of the GlobalLogic debacle and FB’s involvement in severely and possibly irreparably harming humanitarian and political processes in entire sovereign countries.
