I will try to write a blog for these three activations during the weekend.

I already wrote to crisismappers distribution list and will write to Talk and Talk-fr. 

We should also try to be more public about these three activations. As a start we should publish these activations in hotosm twitter and facebook. 

I agree that we should relay the information about these three activations.  Let's look at what we can do about this.

>Hi all,
>I'll publish a blog update on Monday that might encourage more people to participate; in short, mapping products including osm data are being provided to aid agencies working on the ground in and around Syria. They look great and people are really thankful that they can get osm data. A definite success story and we're still in very early days!
>Thinking of the three recent activations, could someone come up with an overview post for the main osm blog? That should help our profile within the osm community and will be the sort of thing that could be disseminated to a wider audience. If nothing else we might be able to gain some publicity off the back of the recent MapMaker coverage.
>Speaking of blogs, I think all us coordinators should be making a real effort to publish regular updates. It's certainly something I'm very conscious of.
>In other news, we've just started organising a Syria mapping party within our local osm group. Hopefully we'll get people involved that are new to both HOT and osm. If anyone reading this is in Oxford, come along! If you're not in Oxford organise your own event! There's free HOT stickers and badges for any local groups (once I've had them made...)
>Thanks to everyone who is looking at the Task Manager and getting jobs finished, it has a massive positive impact.
>Happy Friday everyone! Joseph
