computer-ASSISTED mind mapping (CAMM) by g j huba phd

A significant number of individuals are drawing mind maps with computer programs. Others still draw them by hand.

I think we need to start calling computerized mind mapping by the term computer-assisted mind mapping as in computer-ASSISTED-mind mapping or CAMM. Unless you let the computer randomly draw the mind map from a bank of words and pictures, the program is ASSISTING you.

People are responsible for designing effective mind maps from important, valid, reliable, valid information. A good program assists in formatting the ideas. The best of the programs give you many options about how to draw the map and then produced nice artistic results that you can use as the first approximation for drawing the map.

I find it quite interesting that in spite of Tony Buzan's strong promotion of rules for effective mind mapping, his own company's program (ThinkBuzan, iMindMap) allows you to draw maps that clearly violate his "rules" (really best practices). I believe that ThinkBuzan decision is an excellent one: mind mapping continues to evolve with technology and development techniques.

The emphasis should be on "computer-ASSISTED." No matter what type of mind map you wish to draw, and with any content, you are the BOSS responsible for design, valid information, and concept. Your trustworthy assistant fills in colored lines, draws curves, can rearrange the branches for optimal white space, and can even check your spelling.

ARTIST + ASSISTANT
DEVELOPER + ASSISTANT
SCIENTIST + ASSISTANT
BOZO + ASSISTANT
The key concept here is computer-ASSISTED mind mapping.

Several hundred additional mind maps are on my blog -- http://www.Hubaisms.com and can be searched for content.
