a short video clip showing people mapping together and explaining in 3

It is the business card of the project, the entrance to the osm universe.
It should be addressing those that are having first contact, because they
are most likely to go to a generic url and are the ones we can "catch". For
users it could be nice to have a kind of personizable bookmark link list
prefilled with suggestions ((local) community, documentation, data
download, quality control, changeset analysis, ....)
