Subject: [gis_info] Soliciting interviewees re: Government and OpenStreetMap

Hello, fellow list members,

I'm doing a little research project on how/why state and local governments do and do not use OpenStreetMap data.

I'm looking for a few volunteers from state or local governments who would be willing to spend 30-45 minutes chatting with me, either over the phone, or in person if you're in the Portland Metro (but I'd love to get the perspective of people outside the metro area).

Intimate, or even passing, knowledge of OpenStreetMap is definitely not a requirement. I'm looking for people who's knowledge ranges from "I've never heard of OpenStreetMap" to "I use it daily."

If you're willing to do this in the next week or two, please reply to this e-mail. Your help would be very much appreciated.
