istanbul online


For some time I’ve been working on documenting Internet links of urban sites and blogs related to Istanbul / Turkey. I thought this to be important, not only in order to see where we are in terms of access to (urban) information but also to identify the areas we need to focus more. Research and categorization took some time. I tried to be as inclusive as possible. After all, the list was determined by my capacity, subjectivity and personal interest. The scope of the list was intentionally expanded over the urban subject. The language of each site is indicated within the brackets. This is a work in progress; the list will grow in time and with contributions. So please feel free to send relevant links.
