The last few days have involved quite a lot of map time. I'd heard of the OpenStreetMap project before but hadn't actually has a look at recently. For example compare it's rendition of my work location to Google's. Granted the OpenStreetMap doesn't have the bling of Google's satellite imagery (or Google's bandwidth and computing power), however the data is available for all sorts of interesting things.
