Over 100 members! Wow!

Can you believe that we have over 100 members in since July? That's more 
than one person joining the meetup every single day!

This is a really good sign; it means that New Yorkers care about their 
place, care about the OpenStreetMap project, care about universal access 
to high quality geo-data, and care about their city.

We have a lot of new members since our meetup last month, and since our 
original meeting back in July, so for those of you who couldn't make the 
original meeting, here are the slides for the presentation I gave, which 
covers some of the basics of the project, and the cool things going on 
inside the OSM community.


We're really excited to have Alex Barth from Development Seed come and 
give another introductory talk on the project. For advanced OSM users 
who are programmers, there will be an upcoming meetup where we can work 
on projects.

We're working on planning a Mapping Party for October, and we're looking 
to schedule another social gathering, as well as continued topics on 

This is a very exciting time and I'm thrilled at the interest everyone 
has shown.

If you're new to the project or have any questions, I think there's a 
lot of opportunity to discuss, so please avail yourself of the list!
