Thanks for that Randy.
Echoing your themes: the global home page, and especially the US home page,
do seem to assume people will jump right into general purpose mapping. The
underlying assumption seems to be 'if *they* only had known OSM exists,
they'd become dedicated mappers'.
I think there is more potential in pulling people in via interest areas.
Maybe it's specific POI types ( http://www.poi-factory.com/ ), or social
goals, or clubbing, or Realtors, surfing spots, mosques, environment,
amusement parks, or whatever. I know I've brought in a few on water
fountain mapping, who would not otherwise have seen a meaning in mapping
There are plenty of organizations that could contribute users in narrow
areas. Rails to Trails Conservancy springs to mind, as do The Nature
Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited.
