Over the weekend I caught up with some reading at the Story Games forum (my forum addiction at work again!) and a few people were talking about Mind Mapping software.

Long story short, I downloaded a free copy of Freemind and played around with it. What I ended up producing was a good start on the organizational side of Effect-based Amber. You can check out the results here.

I don’t know whether I’ll continue to use Freemind all that much, but it is an interesting bit of software and I’m sure I’ll find uses for it on occassion.

    Does mind mapping actually help, or is it one of those things that only cool in theory? I’ve wondered, seriously.

    And hey, what’s “Effect-based Amber?”

    Well, I’ve used Freemind for three different projects so far and it has certainly been an organizational help.

    That hasn’t translated in to more efficiency yet but I’m going to wait a while longer to give a definite thumbs up or down.
