I've been involved in FOSS since a graduate student, starting a Rails (Ruby 1.2) software business in London (UK), contributing code to the OpenStreetMap server and editing clients. I founded CloudMade, which has a history of contribution to FOSS - most recently with Leaflet, the popular open source HTML5 maps library. CloudMade sells software to the automotive industry, which is where the cars come in :-)
My name is Nick Black, I'm founder of CloudMade. We supply software to the automotive industry that makes car navigation experiences richer, smarter and connected.
