After 17 months as a public beta, Open Media Network has released version 1.0 of its client software. Congratulations to Mike Homer, the former Netscape (et al.) exec whose vision this is and who has overseen the development of this great gift to public media. The group of us from the public broadcasting community that has been working with Mike on this since before the public beta is greatful for his willingness to consult with us on design and features throughout the process.
If you haven't checked out OMN in a while or at all, please go to the site and download the client and start browsing the audio and video there. I'm working on a couple of posts for this blog about it, one covering features that may not be obvious (like its ability to be distributed with your branding) and another giving a "top 10" list for how stations and independent producers can use to transform their future. --Dennis
