Today in NYC, we helped coordinate a press event to launch a unique new media venture called Open Source Media (OSM).
The event involved a number of high-profile media pundits including Judith Miller (The New York Times), Glenn Reynolds
("Instapundit," the world’s 5th most popular blog), David Corn (The
Nation), Larry Kudlow (
—To launch OSM, which is aggregating content from top bloggers worldwide into a network designed to promote citizen journalism and commentary; and
—To discuss the "Shield Law" currently before Congress, as well as other top issues facing journalists and bloggers alike.
Interesting to note, Reynolds, Corn, Kudlow, Podhoretz, and Rosett are all mainstream media representatives — and bloggers — who will serve on the new venture’s 15+ member editorial board overseeing the more than 70 key contributors from around the world who are already signed up.
The concept behind
Media vet and communications expert, Shel Holtz sums up today’s launch with: “Thank God OSM launched today. Now I won’t have to decide for myself which blogs are written by the Internet’s brightest minds.”
Congrats to OSM and the Voce team for a very successful event and a great start to a new venture.
