After fussing over the new blog, I had time to catch up with some of the new entries I’ve been accumulating recently (more to come). The current trend is still mainly for on-line, browser based services.
Cumulate Draw -=- Free on-line diagrammer. Could be used for mindmaps but not designed for that. A poor-man’s MS Visio, perhaps?
SproutLiner -=- Free on-line outliner. No security for your outlines (no log in) if you use an easily-guessable name. I have not tested simultaneous multi-user access but it does not appear to be designed for real-time collaboration.
Flowchart.com -=- Free on-line diagramming tool.
WikiMindMap -=- You can’t build your own mind maps with this tool (unless you do it by building a MediaWiki), but you can choose from the millions of topics covered in many Wikis. I think this is an intriguing tool, but one of the great values of mind mapping is the process – the thinking you do as you build the mind map. I believe WikiMindMap should be seen as a quick way to grasp the structure of wiki articles rather than as a mind mapping tool.
ThinkFold -=- On-line collaborative outlining service.
MAK (MindMap and Knowledgemanager) -=- Knowledge Content Management System – seems dormant.
InfiView -=- Not a mind mapper or other form of tool for graphical information management, but a development environment for such products.
Projekt S60 -=- Outliner for Symbian-based mobile phones.
InfoRapid Cardfile System -=- A kind of outliner.
