I’m now the proud owner of this lovely green glass globe paperweight – it was my prize from the web map category of the mapping competition at the FOSS4G conference last year, but it’s taken me this long to finally get my hands on it, as I was disappearing on a train before the end of the conference, and accidentally delegated receipt of the prize to a friend who I thought lived in London – actually he lives several hundred miles away. Anyway, thanks to the organisers for coming up with such an inspired prize, one that is useful and beautiful.
