Congrats, Serge! That is beyond horn-tooting; time to strike up the band!

I try not to be this shameless in self-promotion, but since it's about OSM...

I wrote a blog post a couple of weeks ago:

Why The World Needs OpenStreetMap
http://blog.emacsen.net/blog/2014/01/04/why-the-world-needs-openstreetmap/

The post was picked up in Reddit and Hacker News. It was also syndicated by Gizmodo:

http://blog.emacsen.net/blog/2014/01/04/why-the-world-needs-openstreetmap/

And then a week later, by The Guardian:

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/jan/14/why-the-world-needs-openstreetmap

And then when it hit The Guardian, it went to the front page of Reddit, went
on Slashdot, and BoingBoing.

So, in case you haven't read it, please enjoy.

I promise I won't email about my blog every day, but this was about OSM, and I
did wait until two major Internet publications syndicated it, as well as
several others posting about it before posting it here.
