Open Content Model (OCM)

What's the idea behind "Open Content Model (OCM)?" (or "Open Content" project?)

Linux. Mozilla. Apache. These are only a few of the high-profile open source projects underway on the Internet.

Ours is much, MUCH smaller in scope. <grin> And different in approach to "open source." is designed to showcase resourceful, quality content about the 1970s science fiction entertainment production, Space: 1999, plus various other Gerry Anderson-inspired productions. We have created the "Open Content Model" (or "OCM") in which participants can freely contribute content to for non-commercial use. Content will be reviewed, processed, and edited by the staff for inclusion into the web site, if appropriate.

As you venture through, what information is missing? What information needs refinement or polishing? Is there a favorite quote which we're missing? Is there a new Space: 1999 web site which you want added? Are you a talented CGI artist looking to contribute to your own Gallery section? Do you have new ideas for the Analyses section under "Testament of Arkadia?" Do you have a Space: 1999 fan fiction story and nowhere to post it?

You'll find that portions of the web site are under ongoing, heavy development. We might be developing/designing something which you are proposing. Heck, we may be taking too long in implementing new content. (Time is a rare and precious commodity for us!). But we're determined to make this site increasingly useful to the Space: 1999 fandom at large.

Your input may help the growth of the site, introduce new ideas to the Space: 1999, Gerry Anderson, and Sylvia Anderson fandoms... and stir renewed interest in a particular subject. We welcome your input. Just follow the guidelines below.
