Open Source and Blogs

One of the biggest learnings from the little mapping experiment I am working on is the power of community. To build the application I relied heavily on the hard work of others in the Open Source Community (many thanks to the teams involved with: HTMLParser, Graphviz, and Xerces).
Being able to share ideas with others in the blogging community such as Steven Dulaney and Ross Mayfield gives real-time feedback that then sparks new ideas. Even though between pressures of work and family I am a little pressed for time I still feel part of a larger community through blogging. Thanks all.
