First Fridays at Denver Open MediaDenver

Every First Friday, Deproduction and Denver Open Media feature some of the best local music and performance art that Denver has to offer.  Broadcast live on DOM Channel 57, as well as KGNU community radio 1390 AM, these events are a great way to check out our space and enjoy live, local music.

October 3, 2008 8-10PM
Come celebrate the first Friday of the month at 700 Kalamath Street with your community media families: DOM & KGNU.  Musical performances by Dave HalchakRyan Madson and Jose-Maria Ramas plus the comedic stylings of Star the Renaissance Woman of Comedy.  The weather's getting cooler so come check out the beautiful Santa Fe Arts District before old man winter comes along!

Know of a band or a local non-profit organization that you think should be highlighted during our next First Friday event?  Encourage them to apply here.
Meeting Space Available for Members and Nonprofits
In an effort to expand our partnerships with local non-profits and reach new and under-served communities, Denver Open Media offers use of our studio-auditorium for meetings and small group activities. In exchange for the use of space we ask only that the host organization provides information to their participants about DOM and our work to put the power of the media to work for under-represented and under-served communities through our media education programs, cable television stations, and our growing network of noncommercial web and TV outlets. Space is available on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority given to members of Denver Open Media.  If interested in this opportunity, please complete our short online application.

Please note: Food and drink are not permitted in our studios, and use of the space does not include use of A/V equipment, all of which is available for rent or free of charge through our membership program.
Improve Your Karma at Denver Open Media
From the Blog of Deproduction's new Senior Developer, Kevin Reynan:

September 8, 2008: "One of the first things I did at DOM was to enable users to start accumulating Karma. Initially this added some information to each user's profile, but didn't do much else. Today, that karma actually started having an impact. Users with more than 20 karma points who rate videos will have that rating count twice. Users with more than 30 karma points will have their ratings count 3 times. 40+, 4 times and 50 or more will count a maximum of 5 times. This "bonus multiplier" only happens when you rate a video for the the first time."

How much Karma do you have?  Simply log into your account on the DOM homepage, and peep your "karma score", displayed next to your user name.
