Time Magazine named us all Person of The Year! Definitely the latest Internet technology has changed the way people communicate, receive the news, and entire entertainment conglomerates, such as NBC, are crumbling down. The Web 2.0 revolution is here and ironically this was one of the factors that gave birth of what we have called The FreakSpeakers project.

Not long ago a reader asked us why we started this blog and just didn't just participate in the ones already established. Well, although Anderson Cooper brought us together, our concern of the lack of context and reliability of the information and the treatment of some topics guided us towards our editorial line. And time and again we were proven right! As our manifesto states:

"Today accountability is masked behind anonymity, Bylines hidden by zeros and ones. Armed with digital devices, Everyone publishes, everyone is "in the know". Ethics are non existent. Reputations are destroyed. Speculation is king. The truth is masked, a victim, a hostage."

Some people didn't understand what we were on to, and took it personally (... eat me!) and started a hate campaign against us, but we are very thankful that the concept has found its niche. And we want to thank our loyal readers, visitors and commenters of making this space alive.

Thank you to all our readers, visitors, and commenters for making us successful. :)


Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
