OM-IN is a network of micro/info sites. Please find details on this page about OM-IN and answers to a few questions.
A Multi Media micro-information site like OM-IN is a collection of web3 technologies grouped together to serve a specific place or topic. ERT Online serves the visitors to a fun place in Northeast Ohio, while OAPSIE serves those with interests in engineering and the outdoors, and is committed to conservations. All of them provide regular update to news and vents, opinion, and services and links to other NEO businesses. As a network, they also link to each other, with the ability to synergize content and resources.
The acronym OM-IN stands for OAPSIE Micro-Info Network. It is pronounced similar to "I'm in." As in, yes, Edi and I are down to go on that adventure with you. This is the about page.
The Akron Beacon Journal and The Cleveland Plain Dealer are OAPSIE's two main hometown newspapers. Some others include: The Record Courier in Kent, Canton Repository, Hudson Hub Times, Peninsula Community News, and a few other specialty broadsides like Cleveland Scene. We continue to enjoy all of these periodicals to this day.
Progress in print journalism in Northeast Ohio resembles the rest of the country. With the rise of Multi Media blogs and online journalism during the last century, traditional medium size newspapers did not have the economies of scale to adapt. The result was a decrease in the total amount of news covered and original of content produced; most especially local news. OM/in aspires to fill that gap.
With the closure of several major newspapers, the role of a "newspaper of record" is up for grabs. OAPSIE believes Micro/Info sites have an opportunity to fill that gap. You can find out how we are doing that on this about page for OM-IN Multi Media, serving Munroe Falls, Akron, Cleveland, and The Greater Cuyahoga Valley Region.
One of the few industries mentioned by name in The United States Constitution is journalism. The "freedom of the press" is in the very first amendment to the Constitution. By placing it there, the Founding Fathers (Jefferson, Washington, Madison, et. al.) clearly believed that a robust, independent press was not only good, but necessary to the proper functioning of the US government.
There is where the concept of "newspaper of record" derives from. If its good enough for those guys, its good enough for us.

We can remember starting every day with the smell of newsprint. In addition to the The Beacon and The PD, Jim's father also brought home New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The USA Today, and a few others nearly every day. Its how we fell in love with reading.
It was a nice way to start the day. Alas, we at OAPSIE face the same economic reality as every other information outlet, and it is just so difficult (read: expensive) to support print journalism in the 21st century. That does not mean that we cannot aspire to the journalistic standards those fine insinuations, however, and we intend to do exactly that as part of our network mission.

OAPSIE and OM-IN aspire to help people find Multi Media or Micro Info. We provide recommendations for things readers are interested in. We aspire to journalistic standards hard won by our predecessor institutions. One day, we hope to be the Micro/Info "site of record" for the people we serve.
