MIRO Community

November 8th, 2009 No comments

I wish I had seen this while we were still talking about Vaidhyanathan’s, Copyrights and Copywrongs. Participatory Culture Foundation’s MIRO Community ties in Vaidhyanathan’s ideas of free, open spaces to share creativity, while working toward more participation. The non-profit’s mission is to build a service allowing people to become more engaged in their culture.

Here’s a little about it from the site,

“In addition to providing simple and convenient access to diverse video content from anywhere on the web, it creates a unique, personalized video site in minutes. Best of all, it is free to create a site (and it’s open source, so you can host your own).

Miro Community tackles two fundamental issues facing online video—the navigation of content dispersed all over the web, and the difficulty for less tech savvy producers to establish their own attractive video site. Audiences and creators know all too well the hassle of searching unsuccessfully for a video or maintaining unified video content across a growing number of popular hosting platforms.”
