Detail: A good Rebuttal
At Tinderbox Weekend London 2010, we talked about grammars of hypertext.
The previous note in this series presents two restatements of the same debate structure.
This diagram, which shares metadata and content with the other diagrams examines the building blocks of a good argument by isolating the building blocks of the diagram.
To some degree, this is a straw man debate. Experienced debaters will cringe at such a formulaic approach. Others will no doubt dispute the details. I'm actually a bit worried that some of my serious world-class-competition acquaintances will see this and cringe. Sorry guys :-)
