Gaurav Mishra on Citizen Journalism and the Mumbai AttacksNovember 29, 2008 # 1:35 pm # Human Rights # No Comment
Guarav Mishra, the Yahoo! Fellow in International Values, Communications, Technology, and Global Internet at Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy and MSFS faculty member has been following the horrific attacks in Mumbai on his blog, Gauravonomics. In the introduction to his post, Real Time Citizen Journalism in Mumbai Terrorist Attacks, he explains his work:
The Mumbai terror attack has finally ended after more than 60 hours.Even as I continue to track instances of citizen journalism in the Mumbai terror attacks on this post, I’m trying to make sense of what happened in a work-in-progress case study and a Flickr set of screenshot on the role of social media in the Mumbai terror attacks.
Finally, join this Facebook event to express solidarity with the policemen, soldiers and firefighters fighting against the Mumbai terror attacks and attend this Twitter meetup at Leopold Cafe at 4 pm on Sunday to show your support to one of the first targets of the terror attack.
