State of the Map South East Europe () is over. And once again I am energized by the community. The Kosovan & Albanian people I meet via always seem so nice and are doing cool stuff with FLOSS

I'm heading to Kosovo for (State of the Map, South East Europe), a regional event. 🙂

If you want some stickers, please feel free to get in touch. Over the next little while I'll get a more proper system in place.

New project: Mapping & Tagging pubs! I'm using `theme=irish` tag (as per discussion on tagging@ & talk-ie@ lists). Now to search the database to find them and tag them.

I'm tempted to go to State of the Map South East Europe in Kosovo in a few weeks... 🤔
