Toledo Talk logoToledo Talk is a public forum message board that began in 2003.  The site was conceived by user jr in 2001 as a democratic digital commons in the wake of what he refers to as mainstream media's irresponsibility after September 11.

Here's a passage from the site's initial post:

The traditional, major media outlets, such as print, radio, and television, offer the public little or no means for discussion, to be heard. These mainstream media outlets only lecture to us, a one-way communication. 

A community-based website, like ToledoTalk (also called T2), that is free and open to anyone, allows people to speak their mind anytime he or she wants.
