Hi,

many years ago at SotMs there used to be a track of talks in which the
speaker would present the state of OSM in their country or region - the
community, the unique challenges, etc. I always really enjoyed those talks
because they were a chance to learn about the diversity of the world while
also reminding us that we're all the same in our desire to create a great
and open map.

Like the vast majority of OSMers I won't be able to attend SotM this year
(though I will be at WhereCamp Berlin please say hello if you're there),
but I'm fortunate to have a job that lets me work on OSM. I'm one of the
people behind the OpenCage geocoder: http://geocoder.opencagedata.com

We thought we'd revive the country report tradition by interviewing people
from the different communities on our blog. We've done a few now, listed
below. Hope you enjoy them, and if you'd like to tell the world about OSM
in our part of the world we'd love to hear from you

enjoy,
Ed

We also do interviews in general with anyone doing interesting things in
open geo data generally or OSM specifically. See

Final note - would especially love to interview anyone who's done on the
ground mapping in Antarctica or similarly remote place.
