Writing some good article and getting it on slashdot, digg, del.ici.ous,
lwn, OSNews etc.
Things that would be helpful for promotion:
A slippy map that:
* survives slashdot (seriously, why not?)
* shows the current state of the data, without need to switch
between mapnik and osmarender when zooming in. Thus either
having Mapnik with recent data or osmarender by default and with
something visible from zoom 0-12, better than the very faint
I have already started writing an article but it would be helpful if the
slippy map would be enduser-friendly before publishing it.

asking to dump the TIGER data in order to remove duplicates:
Can somebody tell what the current state of the project is?
