We created RiotHouse as a platform where open debates on any subject can take place. This was done in an effort to expose users to new ideas and thoughts as well as spark critical thinking. We hope RiotHouse helps foster the idea that debates, even fiery and taboo ones, are a healthy component of society.
The Name: One definitions of 'riot' is "An impressively large or varied display of something." The other is "A violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd." Obviously we prefer the first definition but the latter, although distructive, dangerous, and scary does lead to us to important discussions and hopefully positive action. So that's the name story...
