I think I will just commit it to the web page if no one objects. It is just copy paste from the 2 posts on users list. I put the senders of the stories as authers. I will also try to get some more stories about PostGIS usage. 

Paul, where is the CartoDB story?

And Boundless ought to write something.
Soon I hope to have a story to tell myself. And I hope that will also lead to some more activity from my side :-)

Maybe we could also have some more personal stories. Letting everyone that feel that they are part of the PostGIS project present themselfs?

I don't know, but I think the PostGIS project get too little credit nowadays. Look at the stars at github. "Small" javascript libraries gets thousands and PostGIS some hundred.

And I often think that there is people that get too little attention for their very big effort. I do of course especially think about Regina who is the name behind when people talks about the very helpful PostGIS community. Both in answering questions and in making things "just work" by testing from all angels and making many of the fixes.  And of course by getting the job done to write a bunch of very valuable books.
