I have no simple topic for a lecture. Though I wonder if it's possible
to do an OpenStreetMap[1] mapping session instead. Note that it cannot be
done at the standard place because:

1. We need to add data. I suspect the Technion campus is already

2. We later need to upload data and edit it. This requires internet

Generally I would expect this to be done in small teams where each team
must have:

* BigBrother: with a GPS device monitoring the location. That trace
  should then be later to his/her OpenStreetMap account for easier
  mapping in a different computer.

* Mapper: Someone who knows what we actually need to chart (and what we
  don't have to / shouldn't)

A team should probably include 1-3 other participants.

After finishing to cover an area, the team should move on to a place
with an internet access and update the data.
