I am a Chartered Engineer and member of the IET. So I was pleasantly surprised to see a Review of MindManager 8 in the fortnightly magazine E&T which is also published on-line.
It’s a good review, highlighting MindManager’s strengths and its percieved (high) price weakness versus the competition. Pity it is 2 years after it was released. I like the last two paragraphs. Fortunately I am way past the 30 day trial, I did that in 1998. I don’t feel anything like a BP submersible, still trying to plug some of the leaks but I have been to the depths. I know my friends Nick Duffill of Harport Consulting and Nigel Goult of Olympic Limited have been deeper and are still drilling. Ok double space problems in notes don’t compare to millions of barrels of oil but they are irritating if it’s your principal daily application.
This article inspires me to re-publish something I wrote for the predecessor of the E&T magazine on using MindManager for Project Management. I never quite forgave the IEE (as it was then) for having all my MindManager maps redrawn by their in-house graphic artist! It was written for them in 2003 and updated in 2007. This version of “MindManaging Your Projects” has my original mapwork. I will re-export the map which I used to write the article and publish it as a blog. Should take 5 minutes!
p.s. One of the best benefits of membership of the IET is using the Members Lounge at the IET Savoy Place, London. If you would like a chat about anything, contact me and I will be pleased to bring you in as my guest. Just descend the stairs at the north western end of Waterloo Bridge and cross over at the traffic lights or walk through the park from Embankment tube. Don’t go through the entrance door on the right it takes you in to Second Life!
