Ideas for a mini-conference around mind mapping and mind mapping software have surfaced and sunk again for as long as I can remember, but this time is it really happening, thanks to Liam's drive. It needed doing, but unlike many of the rest of us, Biggerplate were not going to sit and hope that it would eventually do itself. Whether or not it "succeeds", we owe them a big debt of gratitude for shouldering the burden and also for making it very accessible. But I don't think they need worry too much; the attendee list is already a Who's Who in this niche, and is going to be unmissable for anyone seriously interested in mind mapping software. Despite the fragmentation of online groups by an explosion of social media channels, I think there is still a real interest in in-depth application stories, experiences and insights. Perhaps meeting face-to-face and sharing more than 140 characters is the new social media. Or maybe I'm just old.
The well-worn marketing strapline "It does what it says on the tin" could hardly apply less to mind mapping software. So I am delighted to also say that at the London event I will be presenting some new ideas around the use of mind mapping software for communication instead of Mind Mapping. I look forward to seeing you there!
