Freemind GTD Connect

Jacques Turbé was generous enough to make YA format for the GTD Connect notes (blogged about here the other day) for the GTD list.

What he did differently is make a mindmap out of them in FreeMind format. It's quite cool, and may pull me into playing a bit more with mindmapping tools - the last time I did so was with PersonalBrain (warning: java!), but that's a bit of a different beast (and that was 3 or more years ago).

FreeMind is... well, it appears to suffer a bit from aggressive cross-platformness that I recall noting to myself when I looked at it a few months ago. So another appeal to my small readership - is FreeMind the best bet for inexpensive OSX mindmapping, or are there other tools to be investigated? It would appear from earlier research that much of the current adoption is on Windows.

Aside: Because of what I assume are MIMEtype issues, I had to use curl to grab this most easily, but a contextual-click -> save as... should do just as well.

Freemind is a cool piece of software. I use frequently to prepare lectures. First, you have a great auto-brainstorming tool; second, it produces great handouts; and third, you can export html and you get a ready to use presentation for the screen.

Thanks for the notes in freemind format - I use it for my maps, and I think it's great.

I totally love FreeMind on Mac. A bit rough around the edges in places, but once you have the keyboard shortcut mappings memorized, it's really quick.

There's a 0.9b now.
