Dear all,

As many folks are doing, in this lockdown period I am putting a little time
to tidy up things etc.

...an exercise I set up (with a script) out of curiosity is checking what
has been documented in my blog on any given day in the past years...I have
over 1700 posts since 2007, so several stories I don't have off the top of
my head, and things surface here and there.

anyway: the script helped me remember that on Apr. 10, 2011 I wrote this


for non Italian folks, the reference to (G)FOSS is how we called here
geographic free/open-source software.

Once thing I am noticing today, is that the song starts with a reference to
being "locked in" ... this sound a bit literal today...but back then it was
referred to licensing... anyway...

...if you like the genre, you might also want to check how these ideas
developed: our latest release, just a few days ago, has called in a T-Rex
and a slide guitarist with long curly hair
on a set where community maps we created in the past years in participatory
mapping projects are used as carpets.

Until the next osgeo-song..

Best regards!
