"and work is going on fairly well there"

I wonder who decides what the correct "pace" is? If it were up to me
i'd like the whole world mapped at street level yesterday. I'd prefer
to accelerate the process as much as possible so that we can start
mapping other things... or better yet, help out in other useful
related projects. I'm never one to be satisfied with the way things
are, and hence hold back. The sooner everything that's in Yahoo
imagery is mapped, the sooner we can put that behind us and move to
the next step (focusing on rural data perhaps? - not that is has to be
done separately:P).

Just a thought.
