      Also - while I'm plugging - very welcome at our monthly London Cleanweb meetup, where we think about using the web for environmental ends (Cleanweb = Cleantech + web) http://www.meetup.com...­

    Really gutted to have missed it this time due to working late, but with a bit of luck there'll be another one soon. Hope to see some of you at RHoK Southampton on 1/2 December!

    I was surprised and excited to see so many humanitarian map/tech people out last night. Great to meet you all! I feel like there haven't been many events around this theme in London lately. I was chatting to Justine Mackinnon last night about the idea of organising a crisis mapping event. Also notice the 'London-ICT4D' meet-up group looks interesting. But there are a lot of events related to OpenStreetMap in the pipeline, including a casual pub meet-up in Kings Cross *tomorrow night*: http://bit.ly/londonosm8­ I'd love to get more people involved in OpenStreetMap. The skill of using an OSM editor to contribute to the map is a powerful one for humanitarian/crisis response people to possess, and it ties in nicely with other systems like ushahidi. Come along to an OSM event and I can tell you more about it!

      Hi gregor, you could take the tube from victoria - victoria line north to oxford circus, and then change on to central line east one stop to tottenham court road which is right by new oxford street..

    Note for other attendees. there's two Crown pubs quite nearby, which confuses google maps. 51 New Oxford Street is located here: http://osm.org/go/euu4kO_O1--?m­
