What is OpenStreetMap, really?

Reaching a new milestone as an individual mapper made me pause for a second and write down a few thoughts in a diary entry entitled “What is OpenStreetMap, really?

The same basic question is (far below the surface) in the great OSM Iceberg Meme by Xvtn, who encouraged me to link to my diary post in this forum.

tl;dr We often have difficulty explaining what OSM really is. I propose defining OSM as a movement.

Looking forward to hearing your comments!
