The general newsletter idea has been around in various forms for a while 

What it needs is someone to step up, take ownership and commit to doing it.

It does not have to be complicated or extravagant, just collect some 
snippits of info from as many of the different groups doing humanitarian 
mapping in HOT/OSM as possible. I think the weeklyOSM model is good one 
to build off of as well.

We have a lot of little facilities in place to generate one and I would 
like it to be monthly. Tyler and I started on the basics of this just 
this week, so if someone would like to run with it, please write and let 
us know.

The NGO quarterly article idea is really good.
