Submission + - 3d model support comes to MediaGoblin (mediagoblin.org)

paroneayea writes: "MediaGoblin and LulzBot have teamed up to bring 3d model support to MediaGoblin! The announcement shows off a live demo of the new feature... it uses Blender on the backend to render stills and thingiview.js to show realtime webgl previews. This means MediaGoblin is becoming more useful for 3d artists and people interested in 3d printing, especially those looking for a free-as-in-freedom alternative to Thingiverse."

MediaGoblin, a free software, decentralized alternative to web services like Flickr, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc, and has made a lot of progress, but needs more direct (financial) help to fully realize its dream. Read more on the mediagoblin blog or check out this excellent article by Bruce Byfield in Linux Pro Magazine."

Submission + - GNU Mediagoblin Project launches (networkworld.com)

paroneayea writes: "The GNU project is starting a new federated web application project called GNU MediaGoblin, written in Python. From the article:

    The GNU Project is taking a shot photo sharing. On May 2nd, the wraps came off the GNU Mediagoblin project. If successful, the GNU Mediagoblin could solve several problems that haven't been addressed well by existing photo sharing services — namely privacy, data ownership, reliability, and software freedom.

    So what's GNU Mediagoblin? The project is starting with the goal of creating a federated photo sharing site that could stand alongside popular services like Flickr, DeviantArt, Picasa, and Facebook. Eventually, the project hopes to tackle other types of media, but the first target is photo/artwork sharing. Right now? It's very much a work in progress."
