Hi all,

The 22nd would be excellent for us in Nicaragua since we have a mapping
party that day. Adding the #notlm on top of that would be good both because
we're at GMT-6 and because it would give us a nice reason to continue the
mapping party to a nice mapathon.
It's also nice that it coincides with other open data / coding events.
