Outlining, Argument, Teaching and Mind Maps


Putting Outlines online for inspection, education, edification sdeems to me to be a way of getting bare bones/core ideas onto the table for discussion.

the opml.org option is for me the barer of the two — unless I embellish.

the opmlworkstation has some infrastructure and dressing that allow more embellishment, frill etc.

Neither varies from the hierarchical category orientation that is more or less forced upon us by the structure of an outline.

For this reason I would like to add mindmaps (later – – dynamic simulations) to our repetoire. A monolithic hierarchy is less central to the mind map way of communicating and education. Some mind mapping softwares make mediating your maps (with sound, text, mpg.s, diagrams etc) pretty easy. Thus I would like to see them as part of the knowledge making approach of any weblog — and definitely my own

[More on mindmaps here soon!]
