We would like to take a moment to thank the Shuttleworth Foundation, and Shuttleworth Fellow Rory Aronson, for their generous “flash grant” gift to LocalWiki! The Shuttleworth Foundation is a charitable foundation dedicated to furthering openness — open source, open science, open data, and other open models of action. This grant will be used to help fund our core technical infrastructure for the next several months.
We’d also like to thank the great folks over at Mapbox for donating their Mapbox service to us! We use a lot of map tiles around here, and their in-kind donation helps us bring more beautiful maps to more people! Paired with their global, localized coverage powered by OpenStreetMap, we’re able to provide detailed maps around the world.
