Citizen Journalism: The Guardian crowdsourcing experiment on coverage of London riots
Distributed Knowledge

While the rioting and looting that convulsed parts of London last weekend spread to other parts of the UK on Monday, The Guardian newspaper enlisted help from the crowd to catalogue and portray to the destruction caused by uncontrolled groups of youths.

“What have you told us so far about the events over the weekend?” asked the newspaper to its readers.

What started as a gathering of around 200 protesters demanding answers over the death of Mark Duggan, who was shot dead by the police on Thursday August 4th, culminated in a full-scale riot that spread across north-London suburbs and subsequently to other parts of the country, including the UK’s second largest city, Manchester.

“On Sunday, we began asking Guardian readers what they'd seen in Tottenham on Saturday night, and why they thought the vigil held for Mark Duggan escalated into rioting and looting”, wrote James Ball, a data journalist working for the Guardian investigations team. “This work had been used to complement and feed into work carried out by our reporters on the ground”.
