Dear #lazyweb, is there an #opensource equivalent to meetup.com? I'd like to organise a local meetup for #openstreetmap members and would like an easy platform to see attendees, set venue, etc rather than spamming the Australia wide mailing list.

If you post an article even remotely date-sensitive, please include the publication date somewhere in or around the article. In fact, add the date even if it doesn’t seem relevant, because it is always relevant.

It's funny how common round UI elements have become. Round avatars are widespread, and Android is moving to round app icons.

It's especially odd when so many UIs are built on a grid. You necessarily waste space with circles.

Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.

So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc
