Community report: OpenStreetMap, Free Linux Box

OpenStreetMap volunteers map post-earthquake Haiti, and Free Linux Box finds happy homes for donated Linux machines.

January 12 marked one year since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. “Like many who saw the images of the destruction caused by the earthquake in Haiti, OpenStreetMap contributors wanted to help,” says Richard Weait, FLOSS advocate and OpenStreetMap (OSM) contributor.
