#100 – Thank you!

by Pascal Neis - Published: May 16th, 2019

While I was working on my latest blog post, I realized that I had already written 100 posts over the past nine years. All posts have one thing in common: They are about the well-known and maybe never ending OpenStreetMap project. From time to time there are still emerging questions or issues which must be tackled by someone. This always fascinated me about OSM. However, this particular number 100 is not about a specific subject, it’s just a tiny post to say thank you! Thank you for your continuous interest in reading, commenting and of course sometimes criticizing my work. To me it’s still awesome to see that you, a few thousand people in total, use tools or services daily, that I implemented.

It’s still incredible that many people (not all) spent their spare time contributing to the project, not only as spatial data contributors but also as software engineers, system admins or coordinators of workshops, conferences or mapping events or by just validating or reviewing the latest map changes. Some of my webpages wouldn’t be as successful without your feedback. So, thanks again! Finally, I would like to thank all the people who I have met during the different meet ups, such as FOSSGIS, OSM hack weekends etc. over the past couple of years. There have always been friendly, respectful and useful chats: It’s always a pleasure.

Thanks to maɪˈæmɪ Dennis.
