Ucantekme.com started in June 2001 as a custom-made blog for publishing commentary about internet culture and politics. After the 9/11 attacks in New York, as the main stream media were censored, the website turn into an active community where participants discussed related events, voted ideas, and shared information and links. By then, the liberal Turkish newspaper Radikal selected Ucantekme.com as one of the best community websites in 2001.
The custom publishing software, forums, voting systems, and visual templates were designed and developed by Burak Arikan and Engin Erdogan. Ucantekme.com went offline in early 2005.
