What they say:  " Debategraph is:
(1) A wiki debate visualization tool that lets you:
•present the strongest case on any debate that matters to you;
•openly engage the opposing arguments;
•create and reshape debates, make new points, rate and filter the arguments;
•monitor the evolution of debates via RSS feeds; and,
•share and reuse the debates on and offline;
(2) A web-based, creative commons project to increase the transparency and rigor of public debate everywhere-by making the collective insight and intelligence of the global community freely available to all and filtering out the noise.
•Every debate map is provisional and open to iterative improvement by anyone who participates.
•Over time, the debate maps will mature into the definitive articulations of each debate.
•Every change you make-whether correcting a text, adding a new argument, or starting a new debate-contributes towards the fulfilment of this social promise.
•So be bold as a first time visitor-and safe in the knowledge that a full editing history provides a safety net.
(3) A global graph of all the debates that enables us to visualise and deepen our understanding of the ways in which different debates are semantically interrelated, and ways in which these interrelated debates shape, and are shaped by, each other."

Writing, come what may

There's only a brief mention of mindmapping here, but it's obviously important to the author. Anyway, to me it's a great article on getting moving with writing. I hope you find it so, too.

Project estimating – Mindmaps are a tool in the armory

The key to getting something useful out of this article is to read the author’s title carefully. Mind mapping simplifies the process of project estimating -- it doesn’t simplify the actual task-time estimation. Every project manger knows that the work of a project must be broken into separate and manageable units for estimating. To look at a project and think “That’s about a week’s effort” is a recipe for frustration and missed targets. Mindmaps, spider diagrams and bubble charts are excellent for the first phase of breaking a project into manageable parts. For me mindmaps, as strictly defined by Buzan’s rules, are less suitable than spider diagrams for this type of analysis, but we can assume that Dr. Mariaraj is not being too strict in his use of the term below.

Tony Buzan has defined these "rules" for Mind Mapping:

I believe these rules are well worth following if you use mindmaps for learning. They are very hard to follow completely and rigidly - and its not worth trying I have found - if you use mindmaps in adult life, in your work or projects.

Who invented mind mapping

This comes up from time to time - usually in the form of "Buzan didn't invent mind mapping".

Underlying theory of Concept Maps

Here are links to important scholarly papers by Joseph D. Novak and Alberto J. Cañas on Concept Maps, their theory and construction.
