Video file sharing activity on the rise

Mike Homer of Netscape fame is behind a new non-profit organization -- the Open Media Network reported on here.

The nonprofit network is designed to be an outlet for anyone who creates audiovisual works, be it an independent filmmaker, a public-television station or a hobbyist with a camera or a microphone. The effort tries to tap the growth in noncommercial and grass-roots media epitomized by Web logs, the personal Web sites frequently updated with fresh reporting, commentary and creativity.

It's a clever approach that would have the benefit of increasing demand for tools such as those that come from Kontiki where he's the CEO. [Full disclosure, Kontiki is part of Altus Alliance's client portfolio]
