 ... osm

source: from the founders
OSM?s mission is to expand the influence of weblogs by finding and promoting the best of them, providing bloggers with a forum to meet and share resources, and the chance to join a for-profit network that will give them additional leverage to pursue knowledge wherever they may find it. From academics, professionals and decorated experts, to ordinary citizens sitting around the house opining in their pajamas, our community of bloggers are among the most widely read and influential citizen journalists out there, and our roster will be expanding daily. We also plan to provide a bridge between old media and new, bringing bloggers and mainstream journalists?more and more of whom have started to blog?together in a debate-friendly forum.


Can you find any of that at their website ?

I think you have been infected with the internet pronoun virus

Slashdot referred to a Open Source Media which was a open radio kind of thing. Which may have abused the "Open Source" moniker. And there is the OSM you quoted.  I suspect the open radio thing is a commercial incubation. 

PS. I bookmarked this for later reading when I am in

... but of course,  when one does not know enough about a subject, just lump it into a "that" or an "it" ... huh ... .  But my point was they talk up a storm, but i don't see any evidance of what they actually intent to do.  Sites like digg.com or digdot.us 2074 , you can see what they are doing.  This site i'm not so sure.

you sure read things differently than i do.  The slash dot article that you quoted in this item is about the site i quoted plus the contraversy it has with the "open radio thing" over the "OSM" moniker.   My review, if it could be called that, was about the osm site in question.  Perhaps we should ban pronouns .

I don't think either has the vision I am interested in.  I don't know that anyone has a good handle on collaborative journalism in the vision I am working towards in the group UnhackTheBrain project. My analysis may be flawed, but further analysis will have to wait until I am in .
