You don't need to use the latest and greatest mindmapping software to produce interesting mindmaps. The whole premise of mindmapping and sketching it out is to help you produce a visual that stays in your mind. I am not a fan of the boring online mindmaps - here's one I made in response to an article about how to use mindmaps. They never even mentioned about drwaing your own - simply listed the top five software they recommended. Tony Buzzan would be ashamed!! Get your pens paper out guys - lets make something better!!
Read more at my website - map your projects by hand and you'll become a mindmapping legend.
Thanks, Robin. :-)
