(I was going to get the article tommorow (today), as there is a 1 day delay
before it makes its way to Vancouver Island, (and take a photo of it, happy
you beet me too it) :)
Usually (IMO) for getting articles, i'd scan the top & bottom section of the
front page, as well as the header & footer of the 2nd page,
If it needs to be on 4 pages it's fine, as long as its all together in the
(OpenOffice Draw does it easily) (putting it landscape orientation, i think
it would work?)
That way, the source is properly identified. (at least that's how i remember
it from school)
I noticed that its possible to contact Miguel Helft directly to notify that
a copy is being used to show on the wiki.openstreetmap.org site in the
'archives' section. Using the NYT website, (and to thank for the article)
Maybe you'd like todo that Paul?
