Veena's post reminded me of this new thing (actually old wine in a new bottle), that seems to be the latest craze in Britain. Debating. Some enterprising chaps across the pond, realized that there was a market for "High Quality Debates" and enter Intelligence Squared. Apparently, people are sold on this idea and are parting with cash freely enough to make this company a huge success.
Now, if you are wondering why I was reminded of the above by Veena's post - well, the idea is not just to debate, but to meet your match while doing it. As NPR puts it, - "British company mixes debate and dating"
That might not seem like a match made in heaven, to some of you folks. You might wonder, who would want to come home, after a hard day's work, to fight, argue and debate?! Well, there is a market for it too, as they say. Silence might be golden, but Arguments make the world go around :)
