We are honored to announce that Nicholas Reville, co-founder and Executive Director of Participatory Culture Foundation, has been elected as an Ashoka Fellow for his work on Miro and open video. Ashoka is a global non-profit that identifies and supports social entrepreneurs, people who are creating social change in scalable, sustainable ways. We are delighted that Nicholas has been elected as a fellow and that PCF’s work has been recognized.
Even many of our users do not realize that PCF, which makes Miro and Miro Community, is a non-profit organization. We are! And if you don’t already know, our mission is to make tools that push media in a more open and democratic direction. We think having a few small companies control online video with proprietary technologies and huge centralized video hosts hurts free speech and limits innovation.
