The Morning Media Project is –
An online collective for original ideas, thoughtful commentary, intellectual debate, and opinion about the world we live in. It hopes to provide an insight into what ‘real’ people think about ‘real world’ problems regardless of where they come from and what they do. It is a platform to voice ideas, think and discuss what we should be doing about problems and how we can do it. MMP’s vision remains transparent, democratic, solution-based, participative journalism that not only informs and engages but questions. MMP is a ‘collaborative knowledge-sharing’ platform . So if you miss coffee-table conversation on those days and other days, spend some time here.
We are particularly interested in:
News: News that should matter. The revolution in the Arab world, propaganda, democracies. No, no sensation fluff. Erm. Unless its something we just can’t ignore.
Culture: Engaging pieces on global awareness and cross-cultural understanding. Subjects like feminism, stereotypes, racism, social media etc. are good examples.
Movies: No, we don’t care about KimKardashian’s new haircut. Blockbusters, foreign films, documentaries, docu-dramas, Bollywood, or even interesting video blogs – we can’t get enough of it.
Society: Relationships, religion, corporate politics, teenage pregnancy – there’s no end to what you can write about. Just make sure it is relevant to something that concerns the rest of us.
Art and Design : A largely ignored subject that we are interested in. Photography, graphic design, animation, architecture or anything that shows us why we need innovation. And why ‘possibility’ should mean much more to us.
Development: A category that isn’t written about enough. Anything on emerging trends, social innovation, social businesses, charities, philanthropy and generally thoughts on how we influence our world and what we can do to solve pressing social problems. And no, no profiles please.
Technology: Want to write about a gadget or feature a tech-thingamabob that could change the way we work or live? We’d love to hear about it! Needless to say, we are not looking for reviews of products.
