LA2's OpenStreetMap Diary for the 4th Quarter of 2007

December 21, 2007: I unsub from the tilesathome mailing list.

November 14, 2007: The day after Handelns Utredningsinstitut presented the satellite navigator as Christmas gift of the year, Sweden's largest daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter interviewed me about OpenStreetMap and published an article Sverigekarta görs med gps-teknik.

October 20, 2007: Wikimedia Sverige is founded at a meeting in Stockholm, and I'm elected a member of the board. Besides being the Swedish chapter of Wikimedia Foundation, this membership association has the purpose to promote free access to knowledge in Sweden. That possibly covers OpenStreetMap too. So far, no cartographic activities are planned.

October 12, 2007: We're in Västerås, planning the mapping weekend. Starting at 6pm at a pizzeria downtown. There's an open WLAN here, luckily... I uploaded my track from Linköping to Västerås.
