Using online technology can be very efficient. I love cloud technology and am a big fan of them. I say that they are not different, but transformational. They will open doors to things that were not possible before, and that we could not even dream before. To fully benefit from them, it is important to be flexible, open-minded and try. change habit and discover a new world of possibilities.
Mindmapping is a tool that I discovered in the recent year. I have been using Mindmeister for about a year. They have a good web application, and also an iPhone app that let you connect to your account.
Give it a try.
Are you using cloud application? Are you doing mindmapping online?
