In just under a week, OSM PLUS will be held at the San Francisco Marriott Union Square. We have over 60 people attending and a very strong set of talks and sponsors.

The support for the event has been overwhelming since I announced the idea at last years State of the Map in Portland. We’ve tried repeatedly to bring business to SotM and it’s not really worked, in my opinion. Trying to find the right overlap between some extreme ideologies on one side and practicalities on the other didn’t leave a whole lot of room for consensus.

Trying something new like this, to bring explicitly for-profit organizations together, has worked out really well so far and I can’t wait for the day itself.
