New cKM, NodeXL and Twiddla

Three new items at mind-mapping.org this week: cKM, NodeXL and Twiddla Collaborative Knowledge Management (cKM) cKM is a concept mapper that works in Second Life.  It is aimed at enterprises engaged in collaborative knowledge creation.  Its price places it well out of the reach of the casual user, but it is not hard to see that it could be valuable in the hands of a creative far-flung team. NodeXL NodeXL is a freebie

TreeSheets – fast, visual organisation for notes

Did you notice that my last post about new items in mind-mapping.org mentioned eight items but there were actually more in the database?  . . . . oh never mind. That’s because I was playing with a new entry that fitted a need I had, and chatting back and forth with its very capable developer, Wouter van Oortmerssen, as

Cohere, Headspace, iThoughts, Jambalaya, Lovely Charts, ThinkDigits, TPAssist, Webspiration

It’s been a month since the last update to mind-mapping.org, and the list of items to add has built up more sharply than usual so I decided it was time to clear the decks.  Apart from anything else, iPhone is keeping mindmappers busy with low-cost software to play with and there’s a new and imaginative application appearing every few days it seems. Cohere Cohere is a browser based collaborative visual thinking tool

Expand mind mapping – competition result

Here at last are the results of the competition to come up with an idea for expanding the world of mind mapping. John Taylor‘s map suggests: Provide more integration of mind mapping software with common business software Practitioners to use it visibly and extol it – empowers fluid thought Thought leaders to work together, to

The competition: Where we are now?

I thought a review of comments and communications would be good at this half-way point of the competition, after I followed the suggestion to extend it. The response is encouraging and some good ideas are coming out.  This is how the suggestions have built up so far, most recent first: Chance Brown has posted a comment about his

Win a free copy of iMindMap and help spread mind mapping

I have a free license for Buzan’s iMindmap* to give away for the best answer to a competition.  This is it: Many, many people have never heard of mind mapping.  Others have heard of it but have no idea what it is or how it might help them. Write a comment to this post (and/or send a mind map!) suggesting how to achieve exponential growth in the numbers of people doing mind mapping.  This

The business of idea mapping

Aug 28th, 2008 | By

I’ve written before about how Mastering mind mapping can help at work  especially as recession looms. Well now, Chuck Frey has interviewed Jamie Nast on a closely-related topic.  Chuck has entitled the piece “Learn to think visually – or else”. Jamie says “To this day the majority of people have not heard of mind mapping or idea mapping”.

Where e’er you be let your mind roam free

Where e’er you be let your mind roam free

Up to now, I would have said that uses of mind maps could fit under four main categories: Learning and teaching; creative idea generation and brainstorming; planning and managing tasks or projects; and organising  information.  Always in these, we would expect the items under a branch to be logically related to concepts or topics higher in the

Exploratree

Now listen up, this one is really interesting if you value visualization and thinking tools.  And I doubt if you’d be at mind-mapping.org if you didn’t. A new web-based tool for thinking, Exploratree, went up at the end of last year.  It’s aimed at students, but I’m sure that those of more mature years could sometimes make good use of
