IamA Founder of OpenStreetMap AMA!
My short bio: I'm from a small island in Northern Europe and started OpenStreetMap (OSM) there about a decade ago. OSM is a wiki map of the world. It's like wikipedia, but it's a map so you add roads and buildings (and a lot more) instead of text articles. We started from a blank page and have built a map that in places is the best available, better than commercial offerings. Best of all, it's free!
