A space weaponization debate forum

A reader sent me a notice about a new web site, Spacedebate.org, which describes itself as “an effort to expand the debate on the weaponization of space through a collaborative wiki-like tool for structured debate on a topic.” The site is devoted to collecting arguments and evidence on both sides of the issue. Spacedebate.org is not associated with a particular organization but instead a single individual, Greg Schnippel, who was inspired by the massive filed of evidence competitive debaters in high school and college collect to prepare for their competitions.

    This is a pretty good web site. The interface is a little tricky at first, but there is a great deal of good info here. Some good work has been left out (as I get more comfortable, I’ll add some arguments I think worthwhile in literature not yet in the bibliography) but this is far more complete than anything else I’ve seen.

    Support this site. Its worth your while.

  • A most impressive piece of work.

    From my 1st December 2005 posting on Transterrestrial Musings (http://www.transterrestrial.com/archives/006057.html#006057):

    “I think blogs will evolve. There will come a time when the software is written to collect, manage and summarize ideas rather than words, and to compile them into an end-product that becomes the starting point for policymaking and future debates. I’m looking forward to that day.”

    Only 6 months later, that day is evidently here.

    How do I get my hands on this software :P ?? I have much for it to do…
