A TypedThreadedDiscussion is a conversation in which the relationship between comments has been made explicit - “disagreement”, “support”, etc. That is, MetaData tagging as a way of MappingArguments.

There are already a few discussion models, and supporting software packages. You can use them to generate an ArgumentMap from discussion as well.

…I like your more detailed types, though. Discussions from your system could be fed right into other DialogMapping? types of databases if discussions, with types, could be exported to something like ThreadML. I don’t like the idea of unchanged comments being “garbage”, though — my preference is that as you add more power to a program, try do it in such a way so that users who don’t want to deal with the extra complexity can ignore it and pretend the new feature isn’t there… And people don’t like to be insulted by their computer.BayleShanks

I moved a couple of links to ArgumentMap.

I tend to consider that :

… though things get a bit mixed, especially a lot of implementations of TypedThreadedDiscussion include tools for generating a corresponding ArgumentMap. But, that’s just an interface, as opposed to looking at the structure of the discussion and going “Hmm, how would I represent this visually ?”

Anyway, I tried to make differences more apparent - making this page less about ArgumentMap. (Hmm, quite a few links here are broken …)

There. I’ve cleaned the page up a bit further.

Importing from WikiMetaData:

“This portrait feature is interesting. It is very similar to the meme in FlexWiki called Page Properties. It has a TextFormattingRule? that if you have a new line followed by a single word and a colon, it puts that wiki paragraph into an HTML fieldset tag with a CSS style that makes it look different. This allows for Question: Answer: Summary: Analysis: Keywords:, etc. to be typed information. Interestingly, if they recognize the type as being something useful for html metadata, they’ll copy that information into that page’s metadata. For instance, Summary: is used in tooltips for links that lead to that page.
