A journalist emailed me months ago asking if they could ask me some questions about corporate influence in OSM. I said sure, had a nice chat with them. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-02-19/openstreetmap-charts-a-controversial-new-direction is the resulting article that came out today. I think it is a factual and balanced article overall and I struggle to understand why people throw disparaging remarks at me on Twitter. I'm quoted saying that corporate mappers don't map for the same reasons as the rest of us - that's obvious right? They get paid, we don't?
