Fast forward a few months, and I am literally making a mind map to record my ideas, but not considering that I am using what I thought was useless to do it.
So I sorta re-discovered mind maps without knowing it. haha. Strange.
But I think that mind maps represent the way our mind works, although I see some ways that mind maps can be improved. For ideas on how it can be improved (needs a better standard) I found this post here:
I agree that mind maps can't replace a linear outline for some things, but a merger of the two sounds good. It would be a way to organize sporadic thoughts into an organized outline. Sounds like a good algorithm to work on, no?
Edit: Just found a cool app that sorta does this called Idea Sketch on the iPad.
