How to debate with yourself


Since the summer of 2006, I’ve been creating, “the Wikipedia of pros and cons”. I would like to present my findings at Ignite Portland.

There is an ideal way to debate with yourself, weigh the pros and cons of issues, and actually form an opinion, rather than plodding through life with nothing to stand up for. I would like to share this approach in Portland.

Founded Debatepedia – “the Wikipedia of pros and cons” – in the summer of 2006 and have been working on it full-time ever since. Went to Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service right before that. Nevertheless, to save my soul from the perils of the East, I decided to be born on the West coast in Seattle.
