Mind Mapping in a Connected World
Over the last several weeks you’ve been hearing from some new voices here at Mindjet, and I’d like to add mine to the mix as well. As Principal Architect I oversee the technology blueprints from which we create the innovative solutions you have come to know and love. My responsibilities include laying a foundation of principles, patterns, and platforms upon which we build our products. I work closely with our talented engineers in a hands-on role where I engage with every phase of the development process.
You may already be familiar with our flagship product, MindManager. It has long been considered the standard by which others are measured for creating informative and visually compelling mind maps. Each mind map starts with a central theme which then unfolds progressively outward as additional concepts and ideas are knit together using topics, relationships, notes, images, hyperlinks, attachments, and much more.
In addition, MindManager can take you far beyond traditional mind mapping. When connected to various sources of information, MindManager becomes a dynamic information dashboard, helping you organize and analyze everything in a unified, elegant visual experience. You can use our graphical map markers to quickly classify and annotate information as it comes in. Our convenient drag-and-drop interface helps you efficiently organize and act upon information, as it happens.
To demonstrate some of these extended capabilities, we have created a sample Twitter application using our web-based mind mapping canvas and its application programming interface (API). This is intended to be a proof of concept for what is possible when we leverage the power of mind mapping to bring order and meaning to the noisy chaos of information overload.
We invite you to try our free demonstration application by clicking the link below (Note: you will need a Twitter account to connect):
We are actively working on this application and several others like it, and in the coming weeks you will see more of these technology previews as we continue exploring the possibilities of mind mapping in a connected world. We would love to receive any feedback you might have. Please use the links in the mind map or use the Mindjet blog to send us your comments and questions.
