Our Media

Keywords: virtual community, multimedia

"Create. Share. Get noticed. That's what Ourmedia is about.

Ourmedia is a global community and learning center where you can gain visibility for your works of personal media. We'll host your media forever — for free.

Video blogs, photo albums, home movies, podcasting, digital art, documentary journalism, home-brew political ads, music videos, audio interviews, digital storytelling, children's tales, Flash animations, student films, mash-ups — all kinds of digital works have begun to flourish as the Internet rises up alongside big media as a place where we’ll gather to inform, entertain and astound each other.

Ourmedia is several things in one. We are:

* An open-source project built and staffed by volunteers
* A destination Web site that freely hosts grassroots video, audio, music, photos, text and public domain works
* A community space to share and discuss personal media
* A learning toolkit to help our members create rich and compelling works
* An archive so that these works can be preserved for the ages
* A clearinghouse that allows anyone to search for licensed video, audio or music, download it and remix it, with proper attribution. Legally."
