Ok, maybe I was exaggerating, we don't have to shrink the percentage.

I now realize that Nick's figures come in part from his assumption that 
OSM will have grown from 10.000 active mappers today to 100.000 by the 
end of 2010 (i.e. doubling every 5 months or so). I'm not entirely 
convinced but if OSMF hires more people to do evangelising... it's all 
nicely circular isn't it. Once you gent into the rat race the wheels 
just keep on turning.
