For quite some time metamaps.cc hasn't seen many interesting developments to the platform itself. We've had our attention elsewhere, focused on formulating the understandings, agreements, and models that we can use to carry forward and expand this work together, laying the foundations for collaboration. Recently we've switched gears again though, into 'ship a platform update mode', that we'll be bringing to the site by early February! We're focusing on providing a serious improvement to the overall mapper experience, especially on the map pages itself, with a couple of important missing features thrown in. The people super active in the site update are +Benjamin Brownell +Robert Best +Marija Coneva +Ishan Shapiro
and myself, we're deep into the work everyday at the moment, and having a great time with it. For +Benjamin Brownell
and I, getting the site update done before we leave Black Mountain SOLE (http://bmsole.org
) in early February will be an important milestone. Along with this little heads up about the update we wanted to engage anyone here, our community, with a little question (and opportunity): If you could pick just one thing that you would recommend that we change or add to the metamaps platform, what would it be?
Just leave your ideas in a comment on this post, and you never know, you just might see it in the release.
