FreeMind - free mind mapping software
FreeMind - free mind mapping software
FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java. The recent development has hopefully turned it into high productivity tool. We are proud that the operation and navigation of FreeMind is faster than that of MindManager because of one-click "fold / unfold" and "follow link" operations.
Why don't you use FreeMind? You have a tool at hand that remarkably resembles the tray slips of Robert Pirsig, described in his sequel to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance called Lila.
Works on most operating systems and computers.

Mind Maps* - A Powerful Approach to Note Taking
Mind Maps are very important techniques for improving the way you take notes. By using Mind Maps you show the structure of the subject and linkages between points, as well as the raw facts contained in normal notes. Mind Maps hold information in a format that your mind will find easy to remember and quick to review.
Mind Maps abandon the list format of conventional note-taking. They do this in favor of a two-dimensional structure.
A good Mind Map shows the 'shape' of the subject, the relative importance of individual points and the way in which one fact relates to other.
