I just signed up for the State Of The Map conference for 2009. If it’s anything like last year it’ll be a fun-filled map fest, but actually I predict it will be even better. The OpenStreetMap community is getting pretty massive nowadays (100,000 users), and it seems like clever new uses of OSM data are springing up on a daily basis, so the conference should be pretty amazing. But also it’s in the middle of Amsterdam. Awesome location! It’s going to be really fun to go there and meet hundreds of other OpenStreetMap enthusiasts.
