So, if we are on schedule Tim Spin will be representing DDO with the South Korean High Schoolers on a debate with the resolution on compulsory education.

The debate will be at 5:00 AM eastern time, so many of us will be seeing it after it's done, but it is a real time debate in that the rounds will be 10 minutes apart.

Good luck to Tim.

If this goes well they would be interested in further challenges. Our biggest problem is the time difference, but that's only if they maintain the desire to have real time debates.

What is the debate's resolution, and topic?

The challenge hasn't been made yet. I am trusting that it will come together as planned, but who knows. If you are on line at that hour, and Tim doesn't show, i'm sure you could be a back up.

Ten minutes in between (according to Innomen's original post).

Well that shouldn't be too bad then. The only problem I'm having is the fact that with school starting last Monday, I've been waking up at 5am every day and so I'm totally backed up on sleep. Oh well, I'll pull through.
