The tech sure is interesting. I just wish it was all open source, rather than being controlled, and tracked, through the largest violator of privacy on the internet right now.

I'm a little worried about Facebook's plans to use their computer vision algorithms for buildings into . I just don't trust them. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to actually interact with the community, and if we're not careful, they'll stomp all over our map.

State of the Map is sold out!

Checking with building limits we were able to release an extra 50 tickets, unfortunately these have been snapped up in a matter of hours. If you didn't get one, be ready to watch the live video streams online.
