Event Description

NYC Debate is back!

This is an invitation to attend and watch a live motion debate as an audience.  This event is sponsored by MotionDebate.com.

Come watch Michael and Thomas debate together against another pair of professional debaters.  The attendees will NOT be participating in the actual debate, as this invitation is offered for those to simply to come and watch a live debate.

The debate format will follow the “Intelligence Squared” format.

The synopsis of the Motion: the advent of modern technology has catapulted the proliferation and dissemination of informational content via broadcast and websites. Simply put, there’s more information available today at one’s finger tips than there ever was throughout most of human history in entirety.  What’s more, the “open” nature of such information can be easily accessed from the comforts of one’s personal devices and gadgets.  Yet, are we inundated and overwhelmed in a sea of digital information, making it more difficult to decipher the factual accuracy and integrity? Or do we, as a society, benefit when there’s an abundance of “open” information?

Once you RSVP, the organizers will send you a link to an external event page to complete the sign up.

Very limited spots available, offered on a first-come basis.
