Our Media launched
Matt Haughey, March 23rd, 2005
Our Media is an ambitious new project to host and curate Creative Commons licensed works that others can view, comment on, rate, and download. In conjunction with the Internet Archive, Our Media is offering free hosting for anyone that would like to upload their works. Our Media also uses a custom version of our CC Publisher desktop application tool, and our new version of the CC Publisher tool will soon make it possible for other similar sites to produce their own custom versions.
One of my favorite new works at Our Media was Sam Bisbee’s You Are Here video, which is great to listen to and fascinating to watch. The video was made using thousands of still photos set to music — quite creative and an inventive way to shoot a music video.
