And the SotM organizing committee has been busy.  They have announced that the first sponsor for SotM 2011 is [drum roll please]

MapQuest is a returing sponsor for State of the Map.  They first joined us last year in Girona.  I enjoyed meeting some of the MapQuest Open Initiative team last year and I know that you are going to enjoy getting to know them this year. 

Okay, State of the Map team, now I really want to book my ticket!  When can I do that? ;-)
