Hi Jorieke,

Thank for your email to the list, your thorough blog posts about how your week fit into what was already built around OSM in DRC over the past year thanks to Pierre and Claire hard wrok and how it opens up new avenues and territories for OSM in 2014 with MSF UK their University partners in Lubumbashi and the local mappers born in OSM the past weeks.

Let's all keep up this excellent piece of glocal collective and open field work in DRC.
Excellent day to all

Hi Heather, hi folks,

Thanks a lot for sending my post to the mailing list, Heather. It was indeed a fantastic experience for me as well!
Further I would love to thank everybody again for the huge support from everywhere in the world! Tonight I was skyping with two of the Congolese mappers, and they go on with their data collection. They could mannage a bigger room as office space and are looking now how to optimize their own work in Lubumbashi and the bigger province of Katanga, and they are as well looking how they can contribute to other mapping projects by the Tasking Manager. So a promising sequel...

And in addition, some pictures of our field work in Lubumbashi! https://www.flickr.com/photos/122157964@N04/sets/72157643320371505/

Thanks again for all the support for this brand new community!

All the best,

Hi Folks, Jorieke posted her blog article about the fantastic work in the DRC. Many of you have also contributed to this effort.
The article was not posted to the mailing list so I am sharing as they deserve some extra HOT recognition.  Well done!
