Mindmeister collaborative mind mapping

mindmeister.jpg mindmeister-demo.jpg

Mindmeister takes mind mapping to another level by making the process collaborative, more like other online organizational tools that enable you to involve another person or a whole group of people in your projects You can get a basic Mindmeister account, which gives you six mind maps or free, or sign up for a premium membership for $4 per month to create an unlimited number of mind maps and to use additional features not available with the basic account (well worth the price of a luxury cup of coffee if you're a prolific, very organized project manager).

Other nifty features of Mindmeister: you can allow others to simply view your mind map or collaborate with you in real time, add silly icons to parts of your map, attach more detailed notes to any segment, and publish your map to the web or on your website. There's a very helpful little video tutorial on the Mindmeister site that goes through all the steps and options.

I have an obsession with organizational tools -- maybe because the inside of my brain is a mess or because I prefer organizing my projects to actually doing them. Mind maps are great because, unlike those online tools that allow you to keep project lists, notes and schedules, they're more visual so they stick in your mind in a more . . . sticky way. When you visualize your ideas, you see the central theme and all the little tributaries neatly feeding into it. Your world is in order. Well, sometimes my mind maps look more like crazy spider webs when I get through, but that usually tells me that it's time to scratch the whole thing and start over.
