Been eyeing MindManager for a while. Also been pondering alternate forms of content. So when Hobart Swan of Mindjet offered me a copy, I had to say yes. And let me say, the experience has been liberating. I posted my first map earlier today and now I'm reflecting on it with another map. It's the closest thing to "brainblogging" yet.
