Mindmaps are a very useful tool, for instance to make summaries or to brainstorm about the content of your new article or presentation.

Please let me know, so I can share them with everyone.

  1. I’m using http://www.mind42.com pretty heavily for all my writing tasks. I start collecting thoughts and references in the mind map to start the writing process, then I develop an outline in the mind map. Finally, when I’ve dragged around and fleshed out my outline to a high level of detail (all references and thoughts), I transfer the outline to a word processor.
