Parece uma alternativa para fazer up de vídeos, implementando algo com a
api deles e tal...
Openomy began as a side project by me, Ian Sefferman, during the
summer of '05. The purpose of Openomy is to take advantage of new
technologies and to try new things.
Online file storage sites became a hit for a little while and then
quickly disappeared. However, none of them really provided any value to
the user. Once your file was uploaded, there was little you could do
with it besides the standard downloading. With new movements and
technology available, however, an online "file system" of sorts has a
lot of potential. This is what Openomy evolved into.
Openomy has open APIs that anyone can use to write applications
which store/retrieve/use a user's files. This means you could, for
example, write and use a script to mount your Openomy files onto your
Linux (or other OS) machine. To learn more about the APIs, visit the API
Another movement which Openomy takes advantage of is tagging.
Instead of using folders to describe where files belong, Openomy uses
tags. This allows you, the user, to hold one file in many locations. For
example, the picture of your children on vacation shouldn't be
constrained to just the "Mexico" folder or the "kids" folder. Rather, it
should be allowed to be labeled as both.
I'm also developing applications which take advantage of the
movement towards better web apps. Maurice Codik has developed a simple,
yet powerful RSS feed creator for any of your files on Openomy. Best of
all, he open-sourced it to show off just how easy it is to write apps
using the APIs.
Lastly, pronunciation and etymology. Openomy is pronounced
open-ooh-me. The name is derived from the fact that the core of Openomy
is, well, open. Anyone can develop tools to use Openomy in new and
creative ways. The ending is a merge of the suffix -nomy, meaning system
of rules, laws, or knowledge about a particular field. One of the goals
of Openomy is to be the most knowledgable about opening a system up for
