Manifesto for OSM U.S. Board Elections 2011

I am Michal Migurski, technology director at San Francisco-based Stamen Design. In my personal and professional life, I have been involved in OpenStreetMap since 2007. Alongside my work on Walking Papers, I have developed numerous tools aimed at making consumption of OSM data easier for designers and developers. I believe that OSM data in the U.S. is of sufficiently high quality that the Board should devote resources toward improving its usefulness to consumers such as basemap cartographers, application developers, and other designers who currently find it difficult to approach this amazing resource.
