Free Stuff – FreeMind

Now, I know that we all need another bit of software like we need a hole in the head (actually,is that a good expression? By my count, we need at least five holes in the head – two eyes for binocular hearing, two ears for stereo, and an I/O Oriface for sustinance and oxygen). But I’m intrigued by Freemind.

So you want to write a completely new metaphysics? Why don’t you use FreeMind? You have a tool at hand that remarkably resembles the tray slips of Robert Pirsig, described in his sequel to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance called Lila. Do you want to refactor your essays in a similar way you would refactor software? Or do you want to keep personal knowledge base, which is easy to manage? Why don’t you try FreeMind? Do you want to prioritize, know where you are, where you’ve been and where you are heading, as Stephen Covey would advise you? Have you tried FreeMind to keep track of all the things that are needed for that?

What’s really cool is that it’s a Java program, so it’s completely portable – Windows, Mac, Linux (‘cept for us poor sods who try to do Linux on a Power PC Macintosh – no Flash, no Java unless you’ve got exceptionally strong Geek Fu…) It’s on my thumb drive – I plan on using it for EVERYTHING for a week or so.
