Mike Homer, long-time Silicon Valley executive and founder of the Open Media Network, passed away yesterday. NPR’s Dennis Haarsager, who collaborated in developing the online video distribution system that Homer attempted to donate to pubcasting, writes: “Although we weren’t successful in Mike’s ultimate dream of giving this to a national public broadcasting organization, I’m convinced that we will eventually (and, I hope not too late) come to see Mike’s vision as important part of public media’s future.”
