It's not going to make sense for me to do the hackathon since I may not
be using OpenGuides for my project after all, and my time to devote (if
any) would be limited.
OG is such a great project I hope I can still contribute somehow either way.

Well thanks for the responses. I've collected them
I'll sort through them with the #OpenGuides folks tomorrow and get the
proposal out after that - so I'm delaying one more day. :)
A naive response from a non-programmer (who is
highly grateful for all the cool work you are doing) - I'd partly agree with Simon, my
preference would be something that allows us to choose between mapping systems as they
improve on each other.
Ideally openstreetmaps or another free+open format would be the goal but in Milton Keynes
right now Google give us the best resolution. I suspect as Simon notes best quality option
varies from locality to locality. We're intending on having a push on
openstreetmapping but I can't see it happening comprehensively for a year or so here.
regards and thanks again!
