Recent mind mapping and related software:
eyePlorer for visual exploration of the sematic net
A very interesting tool, still in its infancy, this is very cool. Many terms that you might enter yield a blank circle, but when you hit one for which they have analyzed content, it can be fascinating. Then it will provide a view of the topic that would be hard (impossible?) to find elsewhere. I look forward to seeing this mature. More instructions and information about how it works would be good too.
It’s not a mind or concept mapping tool, nor is it a search engine, but it has a hint of each of these. (click to see a large image)
Yet another mind mapper for the iPhone. There is a free version (search for SimpleMindX at the App Store) and another for $6.99.
This is an add on for MS Excel that can draw flowcharts and swim-lane diagrams from text.
Keep an eye on eyePlorer – definitely one to watch. That’s it for now. Soon I’ll be blogging about WikIT the mind mapping wiki – I’ve mentioned it in passing before, but it deserves a deeper look.
