This was the main Knol on Mind mapping now preserved at Freezepage

There were also two brief cross reference Knols:

"Mind map": A mainly-hierarchical diagram used to organize information,

ideas and understanding of a topic. It is a type of diagram that can aid visual thinking, learning, planning and creativity.

"Mind mapper": Preparer of diagrams that aid visual thinking, learning,

planning and creativity. It is a generic term for a person who practices mind mapping, or for software designed to support mind mapping on a computer.

But we're all different, and maybe this will work for you.

Mindmapping to plan your life

To each individual reader, mindmap topics don't come much bigger than this -- on the personal level, anyway.
