7iber.com is a new citizen media startup in Jordan. The aim is to create:
an independent web-based citizen-media news outlet from Jordan. 7iber provides original, creative and interesting content, seeking to better inform our audience of untapped Jordanian issues as well as providing local perspectives and first-hand accounts of news, politics, arts and culture.
The audience, for now, is intended to be “persons of Arab origin living abroad and those interested in alternative coverage of Jordan.” But the ambitions are greater. I’ll be watching this with great interest.
