When I speak about open data, one of the first things that is taken into 
account is the geo data topic.
They are often referred to as "magics", "specials", "importants" ...
Despite this the talks at the OKCon conference about the geo topic were few.
Furthermore, in those few, the google map was present in 90% of cases.

I believe that the geo topic is very important and needs more actions so 
we can have more open geo data.
This mailing list might help you grow.

The traffic is very low.

I'm the only one who feels this problem?
