Nice presentation with real-time examples

Interesting talk, covering two topic (OSM data and MongoDB spatial queries) in a nicely integrated manner. Delivery and presentation was spot on as well. One thing that got me a bit confused at first was the connection between the intro and the part where you show how data can be filtered by different tags. From the intro I understood that the goal was to build a tool for a specific use case (so that much of the data can already be filtered/converted on-import), not a more general-purpose OSM feature finder. Making clear that 'finding open pubs' is just one example of what the desired tool can do might make the need for a flexible metadata structure a bit more natural.
