OpenStreetMap volunteers are remapping Oklahoma as we speak, changing the admin boundaries to align with the Supreme Court's ruling :)

My hope of that someday Google Maps switches to use data. We'll get there eventually

Someone on the reddit thinks Google Maps is copying .. 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

I use IRCCloud.com for IRC, and they're having network outage, so I'm not available on IRC right now.

Does anyone recommend a #CheatSheet for #tmux? Something I can print out while I learn.

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.

The mirroring of tweets from the twitter account (twitter.com/sotm) to the fediverse at @sotm should be working now. Maybe…

Twitter is not as friendly to 3rd party uses of our tweets as they used to be... 🙁 Please feel free to tell if if it's not working 😉

@openbuildingmap I love the Fediverse call out! Thanks. 🙂👍

Have you seen what we're doing in Ireland with our project to (manually) map all the buildings in Ireland?

OTOH the funky dancy background music on the live stream ( streaming.media.ccc.de/sotm202 ) does make some great hacking/coding music. 👍🎵

The global #OpenStreetMap conference "State of the Map" (@sotm ) is happening this weekend. Instead of meeting in Cape Town, we do it online. The good part: No registration needed, just chime in! 2020.stateofthemap.org/program

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 \°/

Thank you Tobias Zwick!
