Bye, bye Google Notebook

So, GoogleNotebook will no longer be actively developed. I’ve got a Notebook set up – though I’ve not used it much. There are a number of alternatives, however, this is something that we need to take care of when selecting a tool. With Google, I’ve tended to assume that things will not be removed, but…

Debategraph
