Chuck Frey interview with Tony Buzan

Chuck Frey has posted an Exclusive interview with Tony Buzan:

I recently interviewed Mind Mapping guru Tony Buzan via e-mail about the growth and evolution of the popular visual mapping technique that he invented in the 1960s, his decision to launch a Mind Mapping software program (iMindMap) and the future of mind mapping. Don't miss this fascinating conversation!

The interview itself reveals more about mind mapping than I knew.  Buzan has thought long and hard about how mind maps release the power of the mind.  I have been happy with them as a means to capture ideas and plan presentations.  I can see how they might be used for other purposes, but I just haven't done it yet.  (And I didn't know there was a "preferred" way to build them with color and images.  I always figured that was for people who have a better eye for design.)

Jack,

If you've not already, you should take a look at Buzan's "The Mind Map Book" (or one of the more recent ones). I picked it up several years ago and re-read it once a year or so just to refresh the ideas. Like you, I use maps (in the form of MindManager) to capture basic ideas and planning concepts. As much as I like MindManager, though, after re-reading the Mind Map Book I'm always a little disappointed in what I can do with it. Thus, my notebooks are full of hand-drawn maps that I just can't do on the computer.

At least not yet. I'm looking forward to trying out iMindManager.
