Really? Bugs me every round... I need to learn to be more verbose.

Whereas I am customarily verbose, for debate I find that it is much more effective to ditch verbosity in exchange for the tactic of artificially structured incoherence.

Rising Against Vs Druid42 - The rematch!!

"Soccer is an Overall better sport than American Football" Is the debate. I'll be opening over the next few days. It should be some fun, especially as we're both arguing for our own national sports here, and I'm looking forward to going up against you again.

See you in the rin.. eh, forum.

You'd best hope for some continental judges


Over here, even in Canada, soccer is viewed as something of a "politically correct" sport -- you put kids into that if they're terrible at football, baseball, basketball or hockey. My daughter was a heck of a soccer goalie, and she's grown up to be an amazing biochemist, lol.

My final post in round #1 of the AI Series is up!

This is the first debate I've been in where that 5,000 character limit actually felt difficult.


Company XMas party last night, I was out late and fell to the custom of drinking shots of Jager. I am currently countering the effect by nursing a caffeinated beverage, but I am at a loss to understand that sentence. Can we not use any size post, up to that limit? Staying shy of the 5000 character constraint should not be difficult.

Nevermind. More coffee please.

I scanned your closing, and to my horror saw that you mentioned Kurzweil. He seriously accepted a position with Google? Wow, that is very interesting to know, could be a game changer for a company that's always on the edge of the newest technology. I'll be following that news.

Off to read and reply.

Final post is up in the AI is inevitable Debate.

Off to the judges, you go.

Onto Part 2 of the AI Series, which I believe to be a persuasion match. A day of rest would be appreciated, so starting it tomorrow would be fine with me.

Heff, agreed?

Hello all,

sorry for the delay in my 3rd post (Journalism a dying profession...?).

This weekend has been up&down for me, and I haven't been able to bring myself to type up my 3rd reply.

Look for it, sometime on monday.

Thanks.

That is fine by me! Anytime from early to mid this week works. Just U2U me when you've got free time, and I'll do my best to coordinate.

Ok, Heff, I'm ready for part 2 of the AI series.



The second debate will be titled "The WWW will become AI.".


You are pro, so post the thread with the time limit in place. I'll be able to have my response in by 7pm tomorrow, or sooner, but I'm giving myself plenty of lee-way. It's a bit after 10pm EST, my local time.

I'm sending my post to Sky at around that time, then posting it. Awaiting the thread to post in.
