Just wanted to share to everyone that Manolo Quezon’s blog is part of the newly launched Open Source Media (OSM), formerly known as Pajamas Media.
OSMâ„¢ – the new portal to the best of the blogosphere. Open Source Media, a venture designed to bring together top online writers, journalists and commentators under a single umbrella, officially debuts today with a launch event at the Rainbow Room in New York City’s Rockefeller Center.
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 of will be expanding daily. We also plan to provide a bridge between old media and new, bringing bloggers and mainstream journalistsâ€”more and more of whom have started to blogâ€”together in a debate-friendly forum.
They said to have been backed with a USD$3.5 Million in venture capital funding. OSM will link to individual blog postings and highlight the best contributions, chosen by OSM editors, in a special section. Bloggers will be paid undisclosed sums based on traffic they generate.
Kudos to MLQ! :)
