Turkish Riviera, the Turquoise Coast Magazine After publishing my blog entry about the mayor of Bodrum yesterday, I received a number of feedback emails. After reading them, I realized perhaps this man should even be removed from his post. I still would like to give Bodrum mayor Mehmet Kocadon until Tuesday, June 30, 2009 to clean up the shore in the Aquarium region of the town. If this is not done by the mayor and the city, I will organize a group of volunteers to do the clean up. The same group of volunteers will also continue their volunteer work to remove the mayor from power. Here is an email I received today from a Bodrum area resident: "Salvatore ciao :) "Just read your article on the subject today and you are fully CORRECT ... I live in the peninsula since 12 years of which six years now have been in Ortakent where the mayor Kocadon was in power before Bodrum.... (more)

Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press -A Case Study

IP in Silicon Valley Intellectual Property on Ulitzer - The "new media" vs. "traditional media" discussion that has been covering the basic rules of journalism vs. the new media bloggers on expanded social media platforms takes the definition of "fair game" to a whole new dimension. I will simplify it. We are observing three groups of new media participants on blog portals and social media platforms as we enter a new decade for online media. 1) Old school journalists with their traditional values - I personally come from a traditional journalism background as I recently described towards the end of  this blog entry and this one. 2) Professional "new media" participants and bloggers - The Ulitzer platform we created in 2009 will be one of the most respected and popular new media sites whose participants fall under this category. 3) Underground social media criminals ...

Mayor of Bodrum Mehmet Kocadon Should Just Hang Himself

Turkish Riviera, the Turquoise Coast Magazine Every year gulet (wooden yachts)  owners and Bodrum's "blue voyage" tourism industry bring tens of thousands of tourists to Aquarium and other local spots by boat. And every year tourists enjoy the same garbage and litter mountains which were left behind by animals (I can't call them human beings) on the shore. Here are my questions:  1) Where is the mayor of Bodrum, and what is he doing? http://www.bodrum.bel.tr. The mayor's name apparently is Mehmet Kocadon. Well he is directly responsible from this embarrassing picture. 2) What is the gulet owners association doing? I understand they are broke and barely pay their bills but they are part of the big picture here. 3) Is there a tourism organization in town? What are they doing? In short this picture shows how primitive the concept of "tourism" is in Turkey and a hot de... (more)

Bodrum Mess and a Mayor Missing in Action

Yacht Charter Blog Dear Salvatore, I thank you very much for taking the time to bring to everyones attention the mess in Bodrum and the lack of action from the Mayor of Bodrum, Mehmet Kocadon. I live in Chicago and have a summer/retirement home in Yalikavak and I have to admit I have been amazed at how much the Mayor of Bodrum is getting away with. He is only available for photo shoots and media blitz but when it comes to hard work the man is a ghost... I am glad that people like you bring this up to the attention of the general public. I only hope that they will react to this type of constructive criticism. The area is absolutely beautiful but needs to be managed better. I commend you for your work. Thank you. Hal ... (more)
