An interesting thing happened to me on Friday after I began following @amandachapel on Twitter. Yes, that "Amanda Chapel", the one who loves to rail against all things social media.

I haven't been a big mind mapper in the past, mostly because of the complexity of the applications. In Web 2.0 times, anything with a learning curve of more than a half hour and my login credentials grow stale. But MindMeister , an Ajax-based mapping tool, has converted me.
