I recently went on a field trip, as part of a Missing Maps / American 
Red Cross / MSF project in Sierra Leone. I've written a short diary 
entry [1], and was recently filmed whilst giving a short talk in London 
about the trip [2].

Keep up the good work, it is appreciated! I was only a small cog in a 
great big machine, which I'm proud to say that all on this mailing list 
are part of. We introduced many people and organisations to 
OpenStreetMap and HOT - many were surprised at the quality of the 
mapping that was available. I'm sure we will see more use of the 
information, and if our brief training sessions & talks 'hit the mark' 
then perhaps a few more people will be involved in the projects in the 

Off shopping shortly - my luggage was lost by the airline.

In the meantime, lots of geotagged photographs and gps traces to 
process, together with lots of water supply information.

Once again, on behalf of the many people I (We) spoke to, thank you, and 
keep up the good work.
