Hello … Vic here … and probably for the last time!
I started gathering information about mind mapping and information-organising software in 2000, at first to try to decide which is best, but then it became an obsession. By 2006, I had a database of nearly two hundred items of current software, and software that was as dead as a parrot. I kept the defunct ones as a historical record. Putting it all on line seemed a good idea so I started Mind-Mapping.Org and I know from the emails and tweets of appreciation that the site is useful to many, as well as being unique on the Web.
Now, the database — and the site — have over 400 entries, but if you look at the blog, you’ll see big gaps in recent posts. There’s a post from August the 1st, but then a huge gap, back to more than a year ago, 28th July 2012. This can’t go on.
So when I received “an offer I couldn’t refuse” from Roy Grubb of Wikit fame, the time seemed right to pass the baton. The site will continue in capable hands and is sure to become much more active again – Roy tells me he has many new products to add, and I’ve passed my ‘to do’ list to him as well.
The handover has started, but the admin will probably take a few more days.
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
