Summarize

Mapping and rapidly publishing to the Internet is one of MindManager’s strengths.

Last Thursday I attended Ecademy’s 10th Birthday Party at the Selfridge Hotel. The centre piece of the event was speeches by two of the founders of Ecademy, Thomas and Penny Power. I mapped both speeches in ink on my Tablet PC (an HP TC4400). Penny’s speech in ink is shown below.

Penny Power speaking to Ecademy's 10th Birthday Party.  MindManager mind map in ink on Tablet PC

This type of map is not a verbatim record of the speech but a key word reminder of what was said. Much like Tony Buzan described 30 years ago in his mind mapping book “Use Your Head“.

  • Those who attended will be able to jog their memory.
  • Those not present may see something of interest and contact the speaker or an attendee.
  • The speaker gets feedback from one member of the audience about what they heard.

And the finished map as blogged on Ecademy. You can click it.

There are two drawbacks to using MindManager to create clickable image maps. First Google is not indexing pictures by what you can see (quite a lot of text in this case) and MindManager uses the URLs for the alt text on the links not the topic text (which could be found by Google).

To make this map visible I really have to add the text outline below. Not very pretty but makes the point about the value of mind maps versus lists rather well.
