Back in December I met with Eric Gundersen (@ericg), CEO of Mapbox, and Alex Barth (@lxbarth), lead of Mapbox’s Data Team, at their DC office to discuss their work within the open source community. I was happy to find their office have the "start up" feel to them and everyone seems to be very passionate about their work. I’ve since run into a few Mapbox employees that, even outside the office, seem to have maps in their hearts. I suspect this company will provide even more FOSS goodness in the future and will be one to watch.
