[that’s why there is not much posting in the blog recently]
My MA course, Issues in Cyberculture Studies (MED 512) is about to give fruit! We have just launched an election monitoring project that is based on the well known Ushahidi software. We had been working on the Turkish version of this open source software and thanks to us, anyone can download and use it in Turkish…
In the mean time, our project is launched at http://secimtakip.org/
You will be transferred to another site automatically where the software works fine.
We hope to raise consciousness on elections by encouraging citizen journalism. Anyone in Turkey will be able to upload location based election related material (text, photos or videos) on our site and it is open to all… Our media launching will start soon and you are one of the earliest to know…
