Jonathan Schwartz makes an interesting speech as the prelude to the release of 
Java as Free Software. Much that is very relevant to OSM.

In particular, how our view in UK/N.America of how most people do/will interact 
with the Internet is distorted.


This indicates the need for a mobile phone enabled OSM Java viewer and editor.
