Hi!

Well, I think it is worth to:
1) Inform journalist and Guardian (in, of course, very civil and
informative manner) about OSM efforts to map camps. It is very easy to
confuse things. Maybe someone helped to confuse things. Who knows.
2) Understand that one article can't cancel about 10 or 15 of articles
about OSM and CrisisCommons, so don't worry - OSM is recognized,
community work on Haiti is praised and I think in the end real effect
on things matters.

Anyway, it is nice to see that new technologies really help people in
need. That's why I'm doin IT and OSM in first place.

Cheers,
Peter.
