Intel's Dispute Finder keeps your news FUD free

Takes the fun out of browsing


Intel boffins have come up with a new tool for keeping online content FUD free, by highlighting disputed portions of text displayed in your browser.

Dubbed Dispute Finder, the open source Firefox plug-in automatically highlights text marked by other users as inaccurate or disputed. Basically when you come across some info that doesn't sit well with you, you can highlight it and report it, and obviously you have to put in some arguments too, which will be an instant turn off for most forum trolls and Wikipedia know-it-alls.

Once you've done that, it's up to other readers to vote your dispute up or down, rate your sources for accuracy and, of course, add their own sources and arguments. It all sounds quite interesting, but there's a chance a two paragraph filler will end up the size of a cheap paperback love novel once people are done with the discussion. Also, there's always a chance the dispute, although correct, might be voted down simply because it offends people or isn't shared by the majority of readers who come across it.

Without the regular dose of sarcasm, with proper abuse safeguards and further development, this really could turn out to be pretty interesting concept.

If you want to try it out, you can find it here. (Just don't try it out on Fudzilla. sub.ed.)
