My name is Waldemar Quevedo, and I'm a student at the Tec de Monterrey in Guadalajara,Mexico. On my last year of university I have been focusing on learning artificial intelligence and computer graphics and also did an internship at a startup here in Guadalajara,Mexico were working on FatStudent, a web application to help students from London to find part-time jobs.

One of the core parts of FatStudent was a Google Maps Flex/Rails application for browsing the jobs. While working on this, me and the FatStudent team discussed what were some of the limitations of using Google Maps, mainly because they're not free as in speech, and this got me interested on the OpenStreetMap project.
