Mediagoblin 0.1.0 Released

[ Thanks to Linuxaria for this link.

“On the 2 of November Mediagoblin 0.1 has been released. What ?
You don’t know what’s the GNU Mediagoblin project?

“Mediagoblin GNU is a project that has as goal to get an open
source,sort of, ‘clone’ of deviantART, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums
and generally of all the online sites that let you upload your
media (photos, videos, etc.). Why do it? For the freedom of course,
what’s more important than that ?

“Some of the problems that the project would like to solve cover
the actual ownership of the shared content, data portability and
privacy. Mediagoblin is released under the AGPLv3, which means that
if third parties put up services based on Mediagoblin they’ll be
obligated to share changes even if they don’t “distribute” the
software in the traditional sense.

“I forget to say, they are working to get a federated photo
sharing site, so there will be multiple sites that share the same
information.”
