MindManager is a commercial mind mapping tool for Windows. They’ve recently published an article titled “Blog Better With MindManager”:http://blog.mindjet.com/2005/07/blog-better-with-mindmanager . I’m not sure I’m completely sold on mindmaps, but I like the idea, and they clearly work for some people. It would be interesting to see a bridge between MindManager (and other mindmapping tools like “FreeMind”:http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) and the “new OPML stuff that Dave Wiener has been bootstrapping”:http://www.opml.org/.
Mindmaps are really just outlines expressed in a visually richer format.
