Got thoughts or story ideas? We want 'em!

Cambridge bloggers, web-surfers and activists unite! CCTV's NeighborMedia project is officially underway, and that means our citizen mediamakers want to hear from YOU! Share your thoughts with your neighbors! Or, even better, get your zip code’s citizen journalist to cover a topic you care about!

Here’s how:

Sign up for an account. Once you have a login name and password, you can comment on any video, image, audio clip or blog entry associated with a particular story. You can also subscribe to a specific NeighborMedia blog so that if your zip code’s mediamaker, for example, makes a submission, you will get an email update. Click here to sign up.

Swing by CCTV. If you stop by computerCENTRAL, CCTV’s computer lab, on Wednesdays from 6-9, you’ll have the opportunity to meet members of NeighborMedia and learn how to use the various functions of our website. If you wish to submit a story idea without setting up an account, you can drop a slip of paper in the mailbox on the NeighborMedia bulletin board in CCTV’s back hallway.

Tune in to NeighborMedia Live, our official BeLive show, on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday and 2nd & 4th Sunday of every month. Feel free to call in and talk to our correspondents on the air! The programs will be uploaded to this site soon.

Do you love production? Then you can help us put together our monthly NeighborMedia special!

Contact us. Email julie (at) cctvcambridge (dot) org for more information about the program or to get connected to one of our citizen mediamakers.
