  12. Cultural proposals for making benefit of
    new-born communities of OpenStreetMap
    ● Physical space (through hackerspaces, meetups, events etc)
    limit potential conflicts + create a positive & productive vibe;
    ● Regional cross-border collaborations rock!
    ● Careful between the balance between paid staff and volunteers;
    ● No gender balance, no community;
    ● There are great resources out there like wiki – use/maintain them (please);
    ● Localization or just tea/pizza might sometimes be a good first step;
    ● Collaborate & communicate with similar communities nearby ;
    ● Nothing less than excellent photos and documentation for all the activities;
    ● Did I mention great design is a must?
