Critical Massive


The Uptake was on the scene of Friday’s Critical Mass bike ride in Minneapolis. The ride was a huge success – both in number (The Strib says 600) and the lack of arrests or confrontation. The only confrontation we know of is documented here: “The Mercedes Incident.”

This video represents a proud accomplishment for The Uptake’s networked journalism. We used footage from four cameras here, and we have at least two other folks with their own video. Eventually we’ll learn how to be networked for real, whether it’s through Twitter, wireless headsets, or other methods we haven’t thought of. It’s an exciting time to be a citizen journalist, and to be creating original stories like this one.
