I want to introduce you a brilliant mobile journalism tool and platform from Bangladesh called Write3. The project is one of the winners at WSYA category Pursue the Truth! The leader of the project is Khan Suny Md Ashraf with co-producers Racy Gomes, Zaki Haider, Mynul Islam.
Write3 is a brand new, global venture in citizen journalism. The idea of this project is to give people the chance to be true journalist and uncover the truth. Using Write3 is really simple. People who want to participate can download Write3 mobile application and report from wherever they are and whatever they feel is news worthy.
This way people can share their own life stories, discoveries and experiences with the world by reporting to Write3. The news are instantly available to view and comment by others at the online news journal write3.com.
This kind of tool is really much needed in countries like Bangladesh which are hungry for independent and politically uncontrived news, Write3 provides a social media platform where citizens can be heard. Developed primarily in English and the Bangla local language, Write3 will expand to other languages by end of 2011.
I will look forward to meet the staff and creators of Write3 and report to you more detailed information of this tool's and platform's future.
