Hello, I am Russell Deffner, got hooked on OpenStreetMap from joining OSM-Colorado. Now it's pretty much my life, most recently traveling to Mongolia for HOT to teach OSM. You can view my OSM history here - http://www.hdyc.n...
Very impressed with the ability for a fairly small group to map an entire town in a few hours! Nice work!
