Ourmedia launches!

Filed under: — adam @ 10:43 am

It’s a good day for online media.

Ourmedia, a free, open repository for grassroots media, had a public soft launch today. This will be a fantastic resource. They’re providing free media hosting for Creative Commons licensed media, through the Internet Archive, in an attempt to aid the cause of preserving a shared internet culture. This is a goal I wholeheartedly support.

I contributed a verrrry small amount of coding to the site, and a number of photographs.

The site does seem to be having some performance issues on launch, but those should be ironed out soon.
