Default Wikipedia Dumps Google Maps

It looks like Wikipedia has decided to dump Google Maps in favor of the free OpenStreetMap. Wikipedia's decision, announced in a blog post, is likely to raise more questions about the company's decision to charge so-called high-volume users of its Maps APIs, which formerly were free. In March, Google started charging between $4 to $10 per additional 1,000 loads to any site pulling over 25,000 daily loads.
