Debategraph – arguments exposed

For years we have been debating using’s “Issue Based Argumentation in a Wiki” IBAW. This technique allowed us to gather arguments for crucial decisions in the NEPOMUK project.

Now behold debategrpah logo.
Our goal is to make the best arguments on all sides of any debate freely available to all and continuously open to challenge and improvement by all … A wiki debate visualization tool.

Users can add pro/con arguments and deepen them with sub-arguments:

compare it with an IBAW example:
issue: our coffee machine is broken
* idea: fix it
 * pro: cheap
 * con: takes too much time, we can’t live so long without coffee
* idea: buy a new one
 * pro: fast
 * con: expensive
  * issue: we need approval form our director
   * idea: we collect money ourselves
