Back in 2011, the first time I joined HOT as an intern for Community Mapping Pilot (Phase I), I never expect anything big or anything huge. But things are getting bigger and of course better in terms of coordination, projects, and hopefully sustainability. Now, we have 9 HOTies (including myself) working together in a shared workspace with Wikimedia Indonesia and Web Foundation in Jakarta.
