Mind Map for starters

Anyone who is in the process of starting up their affiliate, and would like a visual representation of their business plan, and or a way of mapping their idea's digitally, without tracking dozens of post-its and various notes, this is a pretty cool bit of software.

The wikipedia link explains what in the world a mind map is, and the link below that, is the one I have started to utilize. The software has plug-ins that you can use to enhance the capabilities of your map.
Ohh and the software is free.

Yes, yes, the links are safe. Find having to say that rather cheesy!!

However, the moderators are profoundly grateful for your doing so, and would deeply regret having to delete your links for lack of said designation.

Oh man, cold hearted.

However, I do believe the whole work safe thing is a bit.... un-needed. If you're not sure if you should be looking at links, then maybe you shouldn't be to begin with, at work.

Re: Mind Map for starters

I keep seeing this and asking but don't get an answer, how come our videos on the front page don't have to be family safe but our links do! Only kidding partly as a link to some bad porn or a virus would be bad but the videos are not all for family and kids either. Besides, one can certainly sign-up under any name and do nasty things on the sight if they are malicious. The only thing we have is the ability to delete their membership if they do this.

I said the exact same thing and it didn't go over well.

Gee, Randy, we didn't delete your membership, did we?

Guys, I, too, find it a hassle to enforce this . . . but seriously, is it *that* hard to do? Most of you are highly accomplished, disciplined folks in 99% of your life . . . why is remembering to provide the courtesy of describing a link and affirmatively indicating it's "safe" level such a harship??

Seriously, I don't understand the complaining? Why is this so hard to do?

The front page, and the boards, are run under very different philosophies. I, too, wish that the front page would provide indicators of "safety level" on their vids and other links. But that proposal has likelwise been soundly rejected (much as I'm rejecting your complaints here).

Actually, Dean, links *don't* have to be "family safe" . . . they just have to be affirmatively designated as such, or not, every single time.

Yes, links to porn, racist hate, or other materials prohibited in the AUP will be deleted, and the member cancelled.

you know this was supposed to be a post about a great tool to use, to organize your thoughts.

Sorry, Bart. But it was your unfortunate diversion that set us off on this path.

FWIW, I do like the tool you posted.
