MediaGoblin, the open source project that enables easy sharing of media, has added the ability to share 3D models.  
Not familiar with MediaGoblin? Here’s their own explanation: 
MediaGoblin is a free software media publishing platform that anyone can run. You can think of it as a decentralized alternative to Flickr, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc.
And now you can push 3D models into it. 
They’ve cleverly bundled Blender behind the scenes to provide rendered images of your shared 3D models.  
Now for the interesting part: 
This awesome news means that MediaGoblin becomes more useful for 3d artists and is well on its way for those looking for a free software, customizable alternative to something like Thingiverse! (Goblinverse??)
More models can only be good.
