A Closed Loop
The group formerly known by some as "Pajama Media" have finally decided to bring their concept on-line and a strange piece of cognitive dissonance it is.
Steve at The Modulator
puts us on a path to The Talent Show
where you find the door to the "rabbit hole".
They have decided to call themselves Open Source Media, which strongly conflicts with their privacy and use statement that attempts to copyright everything that exists in their world. They have even trademarked their initials. This is a bit odd as Open Source Media, Inc.
is an established enterprise and might have something to say about that.
Their Universal Resource Locator is osm.org, which doesn't seem to show much confidence in their profit potential.
They apparently found out that osm.com belongs to Oregon Steel Mills
opensource.com belongs to Red Hat
, and opensourcemedia.com is the property of Zope Corporation
Of course pajamamedia.com is also taken, but a few searches might have led them to a better name choice, one that is not so at odds with their concept.
I didn't link to them because they apparently don't want me to, so this will be my last mention of the existence of the group, unless an interesting set of court cases ensues.
