We Are Makers

We Are Makers tells the story of the Maker Movement.

It’s the story not of tools but of people. A publisher. An entrepreneur. A design professor. A middle school teacher. Two museum educators. And a creative director.

Each provides an important viewpoint on why new technologies and communities of making are bringing us back to something deeply human.

The eCommerce Marketplace for Indie Journalists, Reporters and Videomakers: Cont3nt.com

The eCommerce Marketplace for Indie Journalists, Reporters and Videomakers: Cont3nt.com | Fab Lab Business Models | Scoop.it

From the official site: Cont3nt.com is a realtime marketplace for entrepreneurial media and video journalism.

 

From Gigaom: "...a startup called Cont3nt.com is creating a way for publishers to discover and license videos shot by professionals in parts of the world that are difficult to cover.

 

...

 

enabling videographers and photographers to license their content to news agencies by giving them full control of the transaction... 

 

One big advantage of the Cont3nt platform is that it gives more money back to the content provider. While other marketplaces command as much as 50 or 60 percent of the license fee for content, Cont3nt takes a maximum of 5 percent per transaction."
