Very cool. Thanks for sharing!I'm teaching a workshop on wikis on Monday, so this tip was very timely.I really like the way it is a dynamic mind map and expands the map out as you click on it.
Hi Dave, Have you tried FreeMind to make your mind maps? (free download on SourceForge) I love it. I enjoy your blog- it is like reading in to a creative person's mind and getting to view all the brilliant thought and ideas. Thank you for sharing,Joanne
Hi Joanne,I don't know why this is, but I have tried nearly all the mind-mapping software and I still prefer a large sheet of paper, flip chart or whiteboard over all of the digital solutions I have seen.For me, the easy usability of paper still outweighs the benefits of doing this digitally.
"I still prefer a large sheet of paper, flip chart or whiteboard over all of the digital solutions I have seen.For me, the easy usability of paper still outweighs the benefits of doing this digitally."I note that I am not alone here... and I was wondering if it was something like using a typewriter or keyboard for writing... when I first started using a typewriter it was so damn slow, now I much prefer the keyboard for writing because I can get my thoughts down much faster.
Dannie, it's true that I never learned to type any faster than caveman-style; no wonder I prefer paper :)
thanks! This is definitely an interesting area to see developing. There are some other java tools that do interactive Wikipedia visualization:check out Pathwayhttp://pathway.screenager.be/2006/11/25/pathway-06/34allhttp://goosebumps4all.net/34all/and a personal project, Genealogy of Influencehttp://mike-love.net
Hi Dave, I do agree with your comment on reliable pen and paper- I find that with the software I get caught up in the "cosmetics" when it is really the thought process and getting ideas out from your mind that is the first priority.
