>I repeat myself:  less buzzword-compliance, please.  More embracing of
tried-and-true OSM tenets and culture, like front-loaded planning, ongoing,
wide-area project management on something with nationwide scope as this,
wiki writing/updating both intent and ongoing status, making available
short video clip "flight plans" (OSM curriculum specific to entering
building data) to explain process to various audiences in Canada....

The above paragraph seems loaded with buzz words to me.

>From a practical point of view I think we have established that there are
no open Data sets we can easily import.  We have also cleaned up the wiki.
We have identified a possible source of Open Data building outlines from
NRC but they won't be available in a suitable timeframe for a Mapathon in

We know we have interest in schools but we need to work with them to
identify ways they can contribute whilst at the same time learning things
of value.

If you look at the Ottawa pilot we worked with OSM but we didn't use the
way it's always been done in OSM by any means other than gather together to
drink coffee.

Canada does things differently.  We always have.  The advantage we have is
there are fewer of us and on occasion we even work together.
