Wow, there's a blast from the past!

Freemap was of course one of the very first grassroots mapping sites (2004),
together with my geowiki.comĀ (2003 [1]), Jo and Schuyler's freemap.in
(2005?), and OpenStreetMap itself (2004).

We all converged on OSM sooner or later, but it's a worthwhile historical
detail to remember the early days.
