Someone on the #OpenStreetMap reddit thinks Google Maps is copying #OSM.. I really don't believe that. Google aren't stupid, and I'm sure they are being 1,000% sure that no OSM data gets into GMaps #xp
I use IRCCloud.com for IRC, and they're having network outage, so I'm not available on IRC right now.
IMO one issue with Mastodon's report funtionality is that I don't think I can communicate with the user (or admins?) on another instance about a report. To try to explain it....
Lol someone reported the @sotm account as spam. probably because it's suddenly very active.
wait, this music is just the same track on a loop! Now I'm bored.
OTOH the funky dancy background music on the #SotM live stream ( https://streaming.media.ccc.de/sotm2020/track1/audio ) does make some great hacking/coding music. 👍🎵
#OpenStreetMap has been breaking records in May:
- the record for the most daily mappers,
- the most newly registered mappers in a day,
- and the most newly active mappers have been broken numerous times.
¡Nice! In my #fdroid workshops I promote #Streetcomplete as a brilliant app for beginners and experts that you can use to contribute to @openstreetmap while enjoying a geocaching-like adventure at the same time. And that my only feature request would be some gamification e.g. with "awards" or "achievements" to motivate even more people to contribute.
Now I realise this has been implemented since version 19 \°/
