I’m almost at the point where my mind-mapping tool is running in processing. Apart from speed issues (related to pulling and parsing web-pages) its actually quite interesting to use. Having the ability to click on a node and branch off makes a big difference over the original version.

The word parsing/filtering needs some attention (not much) so I hope to have it running on the slice sometime this week - so people can play! In the meantime here is a screen shot of an exploratory mind-map on the word “hippy” (its not random enough to be a proper mind-map, but I’m beginning to think this is a plus point i.e. being able to quickly explore key threads related to a subject).
