Ourmedia.org launches

Ourmedia.org, a free global repository for grassroots media, launched yesterday with great fanfare, allowing anyone for free to upload, store and share digital works—home movies, music videos, original music, audio interviews, photos, art, documentaries, grassroots political ads, animations, books, student films, software, etc.

“You can publish media, post comments, and you get a free blog,” the site says. “We’ll store your video, podcasts or digital photo collection for free forever. No catches.”

Our We Media report made the front page (!) and has a listing on the site. They’ve also created an XHMTL version with various CSS styles, such as this one by Jack Reynolds.

Bravo to J.D. Lasica, Marc and colleagues for this site. Great job!

One initial suggestion would be to move the site’s weblog to it’s own page (instead of just being on the home page), and give it an RSS feed. We couldn’t seem to find that.
