Leave a comment

The Institute of Creative Minds is an Istanbul based organization that “develops projects on the use of public space and advocates an easier accession into information, design and art.” One of its recent projects, 140Journos, is a mobile application that enables and encourages citizen journalism. The project is a response to the “current approach of mainstream media” and is “an independent counter media movement without an editorial controlling system [that] defends free journalism.” The 140 Journos App will be available on the Android Market and in the App Store.
