We’re fans of mind-mapping around WWD: simple diagrams that help your brainstorm or organize by taking advantage of visual and spatial memory. The latest Flash-based online mind-mapping tool to cross our paths is Wisdomap. They emphasize simplicity: you get nodes and links, without a lot of finicky controls for their appearance or even placement. Any node on your map can also have explanatory text associated with it, as well as videos, images, files, and sites – but those bits of extra information are clustered on the sides of the map, instead of being crammed into nodes.
A free Wisdomap account lets you create and share up to three mind maps. The £10 Premium account holds unlimited maps, and adds download to PNG or PDF format as well as printing to the mix.
