Freemind: great mind mapping software

Sun, 18 Mar 2012

I'm a big fan of mind mapping and whilst Tony Buzan is a bit over-the-top on the sales pitch (for a far more eloquent and scientifically founded piece on memory training read "Moonwalking with Einstein"), mind mapping is a great way of rapidly getting ideas down on paper and storing information in a condensed, and easily accessible, form. Its not linear which makes it quick to integrate.

There are some good commercial mind-mapping programs, but by far the best open-source product is Freemind. Its a Java app, cross-platform and very slick. OK, its not quite as Windows-centric as other applications, but its good and does everything you want, at least initially. Give it a try because it won't disappoint you.
