There was some discussion here a couple months ago about the World
Bank signing a partnership with Google.
This has changed a bit and yesterday they posted on their blog saying
World Bank "supports citizen-mapping efforts that give users free
access to the map data they create." (1)
I think this is really exciting for OSM, some of us have already been
working with the World Bank for a while. I wrote a post on HOT's blog
about my feelings on it (2) as did Development Seed (3).
Clearly it is a really exciting time for the project.
