  • Squabbler: Let The Web Settle Your Arguments

    Squabbler, a new site where two users can record 30-second arguments against each other, lets the web decide who’s right.

    Upstart: Gamechangers

    Next time you’re fighting with your best friend over whether Minority Report or Blade Runner is the best Philip K. Dick movie adaptation, why not turn the judging over to a third party: the Internet.

    Squabbler, a new site where two users can record 30-second arguments against each other, lets the web decide who’s right. Now maybe you won’t have to spend your Friday night fighting over whether or not you should salt the water for the beans.

    What it is: Squabbler is a platform for settling disagreements the new-fashioned way. Squabble topics (or Squabblegories, as they’re called) range from politics, to pets, to Facebook etiquette. Basically, anything that you might get into an argument over with your friends, co-workers and lovers that you want to get settled with a satisfying percentage point breakdown is fair game.

    Mike Bender, co-founder of Squabbler, as well as the force behind popular photoblog Awkward Family Photos, attributes the birth of the site to his relationship with co-founder Matt Bijur. “He and I went to college together and we have always had these little squabbles and disagreements about everything, so there was always this feeling of, ‘I wish someone else was there to tell the other person they were wrong.’ Thats sort of where the idea was born.”

    Bender hopes that Squabbler can be not only “a place where people can debate about anything and everything from social issues to whether an air conditioner can get you sick or not” but “a debate platform that powers the web.”

    How it works: Setting up your Squabble is easy. Once you’ve found someone who disagrees with you (an arduous task, to be sure), you can submit your 30-seconds or less video to the site and the email address of the person you’re Squabbling. That person will receive an email with a link to the challenger’s video, and the chance to submit a video of his/her own.
