Sometime early in 2005 (January) the doors to a new content portal will open. Ourmedia.org will begin free hosting for anyone wishing to publicly share their own legal content creations. Ourmedia will provide access to a growing media archive including video and audio. This is welcome news for podcasters and video bloggers currently finding it hard to find free hosting and bandwidth for their creations.
Ourmedia.org will work in partnership with Internet Archive, Tucows, Drupal, Socialtext and Creative Commons. You can learn more about the ourmedia project at:
- http://www.open-media.org/ ourmedia FAQ.
- http://www.socialtext.net/ourmedia/index.cgi? ourmedia wiki for announcements, project highlights and a list of participants.
- the wiki RSS feed for keeping up with the latest developments.
