Hey Everyone-- just a reminder that this is happening this weekend! It's
actually kicking off tomorrow evening at MapTimeSF at Stamen's
office<http://maptimesf.tumblr.com/post/57591408091/celebrate-osms-birthday-at-maptime>,
so feel free to get started! Remember that this is a distributed event,
though, so you definitely don't have to show up in person to participate.

Let me or Mikel know if you have any questions-- we're excited to celebrate
OSM's birthday with all of you!

Kathleen
