Here’s a little list of various posters/leaflets that I’ve found for evangelizing OpenStreetMap:
- Open Street Map Fast Facts
- There’s the recruitment poster; with other formats at http://svn.openstreetmap.org/misc/pr_material/recruitment_poster/ – there are quite a few shops along my commute-route with this on their noticeboard
- The OSM Flyer
- This OSM Licence Card appeared mid-February
If there are any others please let me know so I can update the list

The above is the title of an excellent article by Constantin Gurdgiev in the March-April edition of Village Magazine. I’ll link to it when it comes available online (if it ever does!).
Best line: “We have never learnt that any vested interest, no matter how small, must be treated at a political level as a monopoly-seeking cartel.”
It’s likely that I disagree with most of Mr Gurdgiev opinions, but this piece expresses very clearly what I believe to be a serious issue in Irish society: those who seek to influence politicians are generally doing so for selfish reasons.

One of the rather odder bugs. OOo’s file menu suddenly appears for no good reason (while playing embedded video in Firefox on another workspace). Story is that OOo has the focus while the video is playing in totem-mozplugin, totem-mozplugin seems to want to inhibit the screensaver from kicking in so sends regular Left Alt strokes to the display via XTest. If OOo has the focus, it receives the Alts, and one of its quirks is that the file menu appears on press and release of Left Alt.
