Mind for two, cool AJAX mind mapping goodness

Tom knows how much I like the Mind Map, so he pointed me to mind42, so I finally checked it out. It’s dope. A little harder to use than a desktop app, but I think that’s more  about it beig browser based and AJAX vs. application design.

 I’ll probably try it out a bit more, might as well, I signed up for an account after all.

A few of my gripes (which aren’t super major or anything) are:

  • Can’t drag the nodes around anywhere I want them (that I could find)
  • It seems so far that the nodes only arrange horizontally, so my typical map, would be gigantic, like scary long, so that’s no bueno.

Some cool stuff:

  • Collaboration, i love collaboration, if an app lets me chat and work at that same time, modifying it with my co-workers, all the better, Gold Star!
  • export! No silos here, and that’s so cool, I can’t even say it loud enough. Thankfully most web based apps are realizing that silo-ing data is beyond a bad idea. It’s cool to see mind42 export to desktop mind mappers, I like that.

So stay tuned, I’ll try to give mind42 a bit more of a work out later, see how it handles me :)
