Go from Zero to Sixty with your Knowledge on Anything Now…

November 7, 2008

Zero to SixtyThink of PersonalBrain as a canvas for your thinking to learn and grow your knowledge on any topic without limits. Creating a Brain is an investment in you and an intellectual endeavor, but not the sort that means hours of study or writing a thesis paper.

Gain a New Outlook on Stuff You Need to Know
PersonalBrain is a new medium of intellectual expression that can be applied to your self-fulfillment, education, research and projects at work. The novel and enriching interactivity of this visual medium enables you to not only build an outline of the topic, but to make the connections and see the relationships that drive insight and a clear understanding.

Using PersonalBrain to Learn, Inspire and Remember

September 9, 2008

lightbulb.jpgFrom Edward Leedskalnin’s Coral Castle to product design, let your PersonalBrain bring your ideas home.

Where do you put your ideas and fledgling memories that mean the most but don’t really need a folder? There are snippets here and there: that interesting web site, or cool new car design…not always that important at the time, but always completely you.

As we surf the Web, meet new people and travel, we are exposed to new ideas and familiar ones that give us comfort and validation. Even though our minds process and retain these key events, over time and with our hectic lives, it’s easy to forget the most important project details and these new insights can get lost in daily tasks. Creating a digital memory or mental map of everything that is important to you will give you an expansive digital world new for inspiration and ideas.

Cogito Ergo Sum. I Think Therefore I Am.

From Descartes to James Burke: Breaking Things Down and Building Connections in your Brain.

In last month’s big thinker Web event, we were all blown away by the depth and vastness of James Burke’s Brain. But beyond connecting generations of Western innovation and history, his view of knowledge and philosophy for learning represents a move from Cartesian reductionism predominant in Western developed nations to what James Burke calls a “Connections” approach. This approach is also key to TheBrain’s philosophy of knowledge management and mind mapping.

Moving Beyond Information Hierarchies: An Introduction to Dynamic Mind Mapping

May 6, 2008

beyond01.jpg

Many of our users ask if TheBrain is mind mapping software, file management software or something else… According to Mac|Life Magazine this month, TheBrain is the “most compelling computer adaptation of mind mapping encountered”. So I thought it only fitting to blog about: whether or not TheBrain is in fact “mind mapping software”, what exactly is TheBrain, and where does it fit into the array of desktop applications that you have running on your computer.

Flexible Knowledge Mapping – Networks Versus Hierarchies
Before we get into what TheBrain does, I think it’s important to reference some current issues with information management and your computer desktop. Almost all interfaces today, with the exception of TheBrain visual user interface, are limited to organizing information into hierarchies, where a piece of information can only be categorized into one place. For simple applications this is fine, but for users engaging in more complex business processes, it is simply inadequate. A document will have a variety of different issues or people associated with it – with hierarchies one cannot show all these relationships without multiple copies of the information.
