Here’s a link to an interesting, albeit brief, review by Stewart McKie of the Mac OS X software program NoteMind. Unlike conventional mind mapping software, which enables you to capture a set of ideas in visual form, NoteMind lets you collect and organize information in one view – a personal knowledge base – which can then be displayed as a mind map.
The program enables you to index external files, snippets of text from web pages and more. It can also search and index your computer’s hard drive and the web to find similar information, which you can add to your collection of information. While not strictly a mind mapping program, NoteMind does have some similarities, and it sounds like a fascinating information management tool!
