I think ODK Collect and ODK Aggregate can help get all the Phil Street
Names for OSM.

ODK Collect is powerful phone based replacement for your paper forms.
Collect is built on the Android platform and can collect a variety of
form data types: text, location, photos, video, audio, and barcodes.

ODK Aggregate provides a ready to deploy online repository to store,
view and export collected data. Aggregate is currently implemented on
Google App Engine and enables free hosting of data on Google's
reliable infrastructure.


ODK Aggregate support Postgresql and MySQL

I think year or 2 a lot of us will be getting a cheap android phones,
and creating a simple ODK Collect Survey Form - "Street you are
Standing" can help get the Street Names of all the street in the Phil.

The user will just send the Street Names plu embedded location of the
person sending the data (i.e. coordinate) and Ph-OSM ODK Aggregate
will collect the data.

Maning, Eugene, Totor and others, what do you think of this idea?
