Hi All

Think there are lots of great ideas for an OSM Press Kit.

Perhaps I can take it on and start to formulate one that doesn't just
include images but has the following:

1. OpenStreetMap Fast Facts - English and German Versions
2. Link to a dedicated OSM Flickr page for mapping images so everyone can
3. A link to Vimeo for video (I'm sure there's a lot of clips out there that
could make it into a 'B' roll - which a broadcaster may use)
4. Screen shots of cool apps using OpenStreetMap
