Not sure if I'm also in Richard's "you lot" club, but I produced a fairly
easy going introduction to OSM and Potlatch 2 including a video last year:


I need to redo the video now I've set the site up off the OSM dev server, so
any feedback is much appreciated.

Dave, very nice video. I must include the "undo" bit for people who panic! I
would include a mention of features that Potlatch 2 might not recognise
(look in advanced), and I'd replace the one bit of jargon ("production
database") with some plain english (perhaps "live database"?).
