I'm helping with the +OpenStreetMap application this year!
 
We've just announced that we plan to hold Google Summer of Code 2013!

Historically, Google Summer of Code has brought together nearly 6,000 students with over 300 open source projects to create millions of lines of code. We’re looking for mentors and students to join us in making 2013 the best Summer of Code yet!

The Google Summer of Code program is designed to encourage student participation in open source development. Kicking off in 2005, the program has several goals:

• Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development
• Provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer
• Give students more exposure to real-world software development scenarios (e.g., distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing-list etiquette, etc.) 
• Get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all
• Help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and committers

We’ll be offering successful student contributors a 5,000 USD stipend, enabling them to focus on their coding projects for three months. This program is done completely online. Students and mentors from more than 100 countries have participated in past years.

Google will accept applications from open source projects from March 18–March 29, 2013. Student applications will be accepted from April 22–May 3, 2013.

Find full details on requirements for participating, including how to apply and info on the all-important t-shirt at http://www.google-melange.com. We hope you'll consider participating as a student, mentor, or organization, or just spreading the word about this great program!

+Kate Chapman  Ah, now that you mention that. I think I need to apply some master to join it next year. Btw, 8 hours for my job, 8 hours for GSoC, 8 hours for sleep, and I'm not human anymore :)

The oh so important research section in the burrito Wikipedia article should really be expanded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burrito#Research

Just some heads up, a fair number of pictures aren't loading - or are just a refresh image. Otherwise, beautiful!

New application to see who is mapping in #OpenStreetMap nearby. Far easier than previous tools.

I think we should have t-shirts that say "never trust the internet...." and on the back it would say "connection." Great day though!
 
Trained OpenStreetMap and QGIS to 66 students today with +Vasanthi Hargyono and also helped by +Kate Chapman . Though the internet was the main problem (as usual), I think all students are ready to map Jakarta for better flood readiness!! Thank you for Department of Geography University of Indonesia for being a good host so far!

Tagline
Maps, OpenStreetMap and chickens
Introduction
Over the past 10 years I have mapped all sorts of things. Everything from mosquitoes, to individual houses for e911 to hurricanes and occasionally even things that don’t exist such as augmented reality games. A traditional geographer by training, I have branched out into some of the “neogeography” realms. Though really to me it is all data.  The last time I had a traditional GIS title was in 2004 and it was “GPS Technician.”
