Social argument collaboration for the web.
Argumenta's goal is to help people build better arguments online, by collaborating with others. To do this, we've made Arguments and Propositions the focus. In Argumenta, they are first-class citizens; discrete components which can be identified by their contents, and thus referenced by other entities - no matter who creates them or how they are used.
Here's the essentials:
- Arguments are composed of propositions - a series of premises leading to a conclusion.
- Propositions are short, tweet-like strings of text - 240 characters max.
- Both are identified by the SHA-1 hash of their object record, just as in Git.
- Support and Dispute tags link a proposition with a related argument.
- Citation tags link propositions with any external resource, through text, embedded videos, or URLs.
