Liking the mindmaps – I do them all the time by hand but have heard there are some good bits of software around for drawing them. What did you use to do these? And how is your draft thesis report coming on?!

I’ve used mindmaps before for “ideas” but have just been on a speed reading course and they suggested using them for notes as a really good way of remembering – so have decided to ditch the linear notes and go for this method instead.
The software I’ve been using is called XMind (which is free for non-pro version) and theres a link to their website in my Richardson’s blog – its really easy to use & free, and includes the ability to add notes to each of the topic areas which are shown by note icons on the PDF (when using the packlage you can hover over the notes to expand). It also includes an on-line collaborative bit, but I havent used that.
Give it a try – its free and if you need a quick demo/tutorial let me know and I’ll try to bring in my laptop.
Still havent done the Thesis stuff yet (other than notes & ideas) – I’m struggling with the work level especially as this week we have 2 deadlines (Prisca & Thesis) and I havent done either yet.
Oh well back to the saltmines…
