Miro fundraising campaign

March 28, 2008

Online video is growing rapidly, but is also facing a crisis:
A few very large sites have dominant market share and cases of corporate censorship are happening every single day. Creators are stuck.
Miro is leading the fight to ensure that video online can be open to every creator, anywhere in the world. This is truly a battle for the future of free speech and media access.

This is the situation told by the Participatory Culture Foundation which is responsible for miro (an open source/free software internet television application).

Our team cares deeply about our mission and we need to ensure that our work can continue. Two large donors have promised to commit funding if we can also build strong support from our users.
There is no more important time than right now for you to donate–we’re taking steps towards self-sustainability–in the meantime we urgently need your support.

I think its very important to have a open internet television infrastructure to allow free speech for individuals and companies alongside. NOW is the chance to establish
a form of media which is not top down driven and company centered like the established one but democratic and open for everybody!

There are also two videos which are explaining the cause of the miro software. One is with Dave Glassco – Miro Funder and the other with OK Go’s Andy Ross talking about: Why Miro Matters.

Donating for miro can be done on this page.
