I'm working in OSM since October 2007. I did my first steps with Potlatch. Later on I got used to JOSM.
I'm really fascinated about OSM. Why? Simple Question! In 2006 I had the idea to start a Wiki-like system for mapping. Already collected some ideas how to realize this I got a link to OSM from a friend. Although there are some differences to my own ideas I like OSM very much. OSM has one very big advantage: It's already running! When the time has come and I have mapped enough, then I will start on working on OSM itself. (I don't think mapping will ever be enough...)
So have a nice day and enjoy the mapping!
