This piece of software just crossed my keyboard: MindManager X5 Pro. I was already familiar with mind maps. Kent Beck uses them extensively. And, I’d seen similar software like The Brain. But, MindManager is so much more than just a mind mapping tool. It is extremely intuitive. I was up and running in less than five minutes. And, it integrates with several Microsoft Office applications, including Word, PowerPoint and Outlook. I am so impressed that I am seriously considering coughing up the $250 they are asking!
