Attention Mind-Mappers - Bubble-Mind is Here

Are you a mind-map aficionado? Do you think in terms of bubbles? Then Bubble-Mind is for you. Seriously, many very smart people have increased their productivity by using mind-mapping tools, which are just visual ways of organizing ideas.
A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate, visualize, structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, and decision making.

It is an image-centered diagram that represents semantic or other connections between portions of information. By presenting these connections in a radial, non-linear graphical manner, it encourages a brainstorming approach to any given organizational task, eliminating the hurdle of initially establishing an intrinsically appropriate or relevant conceptual framework to work within.

A mind map is similar to a semantic network or cognitive map but there are no formal restrictions on the kinds of links used.

The elements are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts and they are organized into groupings, branches, or areas. The uniform graphic formulation of the semantic structure of information on the method of gathering knowledge, may aid recall of existing memories.

I've just discovered an excellent Web 2.0 mind-mapping tool that you will appreciate whether you're already a mind-mapper or just someone who'd like to see how it works. It's called Bubble-Mind and it can be gotten to here.
