 From a quick scan through the last couple of months, perhaps stuff 
like: feeds, Software Freedom Day, GPS in planes, 35 servers from 
Wikimedia Foundation, persistence of ids, mugs, a campaign about Google 
imagery, the Economist, Monopoly, the evolution of a map through time, a 
countryside mapping tool, cartography, relations vs superways, what to 
map first, OpenStreetView, getting field data, Poland, our own 
satellite, translations, definitive maps, iPhones, coastline quality, 
the amount of water on the planet, adjoining geometries, EGNOS, funny 
posters, what "blocks" mean, maps for the blind, WMS, national 
boundaries, the site title bar, national websites, expanding the API, 
Bing, spam, Panogate, automatic simplification, GPS accuracy, search 
engines indexing OSM, Local Chapters update, RC helicopters, 
multipolygon rendering, meeting minutes, video surveying, historic 
mapping, duplicate ways, and Twitter.
