Subject: [Maps-l] "Why OpenStreetMap is in Serious Trouble"
To: map...@lists.wikimedia.org


In a blog post by Serge Wroclawski, a long time OpenStreetMap contributor
and the founder of the OpenStreetMap US organization, outlines reasons why
he believes OSM is in trouble.

A choice quote.

"The first problem that I feel plagues OSM is that the OpenStreetMap
Foundation views the mission of the project to provide the world a
geographic database, but not geographic services."
