Iâ€™ve written about mindmaps recently and my upcoming creativity talk on April 10.
I thought Iâ€™d share the draft mindmap Iâ€™ve prepared so far for the talk. Freemind lets me export to a flash-based mindmap that you can navigate. You canâ€™t edit it or see how I edit it to see how fun, useful, and effective it is, but you can see the output.
Itâ€™s an incomplete draft â€” too long for a twenty minute talk, but at least illustrates mindmaps. To navigate
- use arrow keys or click white space and drag to move the map
- click the ‘+’ or ‘-‘ icon at the top to resize the map
- click the “fit” icon at the top (to the right of the ‘-‘) to fit the visible part of the mindmap in the space available
- click nodesÂ in the mindmap to show or hide nodes beneath them — dragging, resizing, or re-fitting as necessary afterward
