Tartan scarf

rweait's picture

A new scarf, perhaps. Hard to say really. I mean, it's a rectangle. It could be a scarf or a shawl. It could be a bed throw, a couch throw or a wide table runner. Mostly, it will be up to the user.

This was my second go at the Cameron of Erracht tartan.

Round One

My first go at the Cameron of Erracht tartan was with the Modern colourway, as judiciously cropped, here.

Mother's Day 2015

doubleweave pillow case project, winding onto cloth beam

I've been doing a little weaving. This is my Mother's Day 2015 project, shown in progress. Each additional thread of yarn is added to the cloth near the top right of this image. The woven cloth lengthens as each additional thread is added. This process continues, adding threads and lengthening cloth. The woven cloth is wound onto the cloth beam to allow more threads to be added to the cloth and to extend the maximum length of an object woven on the loom. The lower portion of the image shows several wraps of the cloth woven for this project. Read more about Mother's Day 2015

OpenStreetMap Foundation General Meeting Analysis

The December 2014 general meeting was held on IRC over the weekend, and appeared to run smoothly. Thanks go to Paul Norman as the election manager and Kate Chapman as the meeting chair. Quorum was reached, with some room to spare, and there appeared to be several observers in attendance as well.

The official notice of the election results will appear on the OpenStreetMap Foundation web site. I'm using numbers from a draft version, so any errors or oversights are entirely my fault. Read more about OpenStreetMap Foundation General Meeting Analysis

On-ramp to successful communities

OpenStreetMap is a community of many successful communities. The community and communities are a core strength of OpenStreetMap and so building a successful community is never complete. Jono Bacon breaks refines a method of community improvement to four simple steps in one elegant image.Jono's tweet Jono's on-ramp image makes for delightful application to the OpenStreetMap context.

Are you an OpenStreetMap contributor with a yearning to do more for the OpenStreetMap project? Consider participating in an OpenStreetMap Foundation Working Group. Working Groups were established to implement the wishes of the larger OpenStreetMap community particularly where individual mappers are less effective.

Working Groups execute tasks on behalf of the greater OpenSteetmap community and tend to operate along thematic boundaries. Read more about Reinvigorating Working Groups

Term limits

I've made a spreadsheet that implements the special resolutions as I understand them. Have a look if you would like to play with the term limits and the history of the board*. Set a "date of interest" in cell B2. Or fill that cell with =NOW() to have it up to date each day. :-) The final column should tell you if a particular board member is term limited as of the date of interest. The spreadsheet is in Open Document Format

This post includes the raw output from the online voting service used for the OSMF 2014 AGM voting matters. Also included is an html-ified transcription with pretty bar graphs from the original pdf. Find the orignals below.

As noted elsewhere, a typo propagated into the election and so the records show a candidate Paul Normal who we know as candidate Paul Norman. I have left those typos in place.

[Transcription begins. Apologies in advance for errors.] Read more about Board election data 2014
