There's a pretty good community in the US, too (although not nearly as
prolific as the Germans). To monitor activity I'd suggest you go to
www.itoworld.com and sign up to monitor an area you're interested in. The
"sessions" view will give you an idea about recent activity. Also, if you
set a location on your OSM profile, you can see other nearby users who have
given their location as well.
