Additional Commentary by Beth Kanter
This is just the tool I've been craving for some of larger collections of resource lists and tools. For example, I have a big messy tool list -0http://socialmedia-strategy.wikispaces.com/Beth%27s+Big+List that I have on a wiki that could definitely be more user friendly if on a mindmap. And it could embedded into wikis - and exported as PDF.
This is definitely on my to do list to explore ... thank you Robin
Robin Good: If you are looking for a content curation, mindmapping and presentation tool rolled into one, I strongly suggest you give a good road test to Mindomo.
But with time, and the increased size of my collections, I have been searching for valid alternatives which provided greater speed, better ways to display and view the mapped info and more options to extract value from my collections.
Mindomo, which I have been heavy-testing for the last six-months, is my new reference tool not just for mindmapping but for a) curating large collections of information into a navigable cohesive whole, b) creating prezi-like presentations without needing to become an engineer.
Specifically, Mindomo integrates lots of unique and very valuable features to the basic mindmapping toolset, including:
- Capture content via browser bookmarklet
- Navigate and zoom in-out easily
- Search and embed video clips
- Search and embed audio clips
- Automatically credit all media sources utilized
- Customize look of maps in many ways
- Create presentations from your mindmaps
- Import and export to different formats + embed
- Works and syncs on iPad and Android
- Collaborative editing
- Cross-platform offline desktop app
- Custom URLs for your mindmaps
- just to name a few.
Here's a good example of what I have been able to "curate" with Mindomo:
a very large collection of content curation tools
2) www.mindomo.com/mindmap/content-curation-for-education-98ccaad217074a07b9bff8b76effab8e ;
a navigable "presentation-map"
MindMeister and other mindmapping tools still provide good value, but in my humble opinion Mindomo, with its own limits and idiosyncracies, has earned my trust as being the most effective, powerful and feature-rich visual curation tool.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Mind Mapping is a visual information management tool that enables us to structure, organize, memorize, arrange, brainstorm and learn information in a highly specialized way...
These days mind mapping isn’t all about the map. It’s rather evolving into a visual information management tool that is transforming the way we think and work on a daily basis — bringing into perspective the critical importance of developing our visual thinking capacity.

"Mindmapping is the process of drawing up diagrams that show relations between various ideas, tasks or information. For many of us this shows to actually be a way of taking notes that can be more useful than just writing down keywords or sentences like we do on a to-do list."

Framindmap est un nouveau projet du réseau Framasoft.
Il permet de faire de jolies cartes heuristiques directement en ligne à même le navigateur (on parle aussi de carte mentale ou mind map).
L’interface est franchement fluide et intuitive.
Pas d’installation, pas d’inscription, vous voici tout de suite opérationnel(le) ! De plus nous ne conservons strictement aucune donnée personnelle (l’application ne laisse de traces que locales sur votre ordinateur et non sur le serveur).
