You certainly know Picasa Albums Web and Flickr, two commercial picture hosting services. You probably know a few free software projects that allow people to keep control of their own pictures, such as Gallery, Piwigo, Zenphoto or PhotoShow.

GNU MediaGoblin is a similar project, but with some interesting characteristics and features:

  • it has a funny name and mascot;
  • it is part of the GNU project;
  • it is written in Python;
  • it does not need a database servers since can use an SQLite database;
  • it is designed with a specific care for free culture, allowing to indicate the license of a picture and to provide its source format as an attachment for instance.
  • it supports audio, video and 3D models with HTML5 features rather than the dreadful Flash;
  • it is a work in progress and is asking for financial contribution.

If you find GNU MediaGoblin as promising as I do, please consider donating!
