If you have followed any of my blogs for any time, you know that I am a huge fan of mind mapping and that one of my two favorite tools for mind mapping is MindManager.  (The other is Personal Brain - both claim to be mind mapping tools and in a sense they are but for me they fill very different productivity roles.)  Each of these tools does an amazing job at helping me visualize and map ideas and knowledge.

This week, Mindjet released Version 8 of MindManager, its mind mapping software, as well as MindManager Web, an on-line mapping service. Here are just a few key features: Rich export to fully interactive Adobe PDF or SWF files (you can work with people that do not have MindManager), Web access within MindManager, Web Collaboration, MS Office Editing within MindManager (MindManager becomes your working environment). And, there's much more... Brian Friedlander, over at the Assistive Technology blog has done a terrific job of writing about the key features and benefits of MindManager 8. I encourage you to read his summary.

Hi Eric

Thanks for mentioning me in your post, it is appreciated. I am really excited with the Mindjet Player feature and will be doing some more posts about this feature in the upcoming week.

Mindjet Releases MindManager 8 - it’s a game changer


I attended a Mindjet seminar last week in Mt. View (ah the joys of living in the Bay area). I am now running MM8 and can hardly contain my joy! It's wonderful especially the Player feature. I just used it to post a mindmap about MM on my IBM internal blog.

I became a big fan of mindmaps when I started subscribing for . I think that reading the book summaries were much more fun when done in the mindmap format.

It is a serious matter and yet it still brings out the child in you.

Indeed. Do you know that there is Notes integration with MindManager? Search my personal blog for details. Eric

Patrick, I routinely mind map books as I read them., It helps me to organize what I learn from them. A few years ago, I took a New Testament survey course and I mind mapped most of the books as I read them it was a helpful tool for me. Thanks for sharing.
