[eDebate] evidence read of laptops
Mon Sep 13 13:46:53 CDT 2004
Laptops are good, they are a step forward.
But there are a few no-nos that we should agree upon. (Feel free to add to
this list, forgive me if any of these are silly)
1. Debaters with laptops should not use any form of instant messenger during
the round (a big no-no) or email other squard members to receive help. Could
you imagine a situation where a person in the room watching the round was
sending one of the teams answers? very, very, bad
2. Debaters with laptops shouldn't be allowed to cut more cards or access
the internet for answers to a position that they came into the round
unprepared for. Basically I think that debaters should be required to
disconnect from the internet during rounds.
Other than than I think flowing on laptops, keeping frontlines or evidence
on them, or anything else is OK. but keeping evidence on laptops is a pain
for eveyone involved (insert the "Dude you broke my laptop" scenario here).
