Mikel was blaming OSMF for not taking the opportunity to exploit the
Apple disaster and pro-actively riding the media wave about the topic in
order to promote OSM. He says that OSMF should not only be reactive and
wait until a journalist asks for a comment. This is very much
contradicting to your earlier statement where mentioned that even if a
journalist comes across the board should answer "ask the mappers out
there not OSMF respectively the Board". Personally I would like to see
OSMF engaging a media agency that is driven by CWG in order to increase
press coverage.
