Mind maps

I first came across mind maps back in the last 1980's when a friend/colleague at the University started to use them. I didn't really think any more of them until recently, when another friend pointed me at XMind. Very nice piece of software and it's opened up a whole new way of doing things for me. Gone are my scraps of paper, hastily scrawled notes and other ad hoc approaches!

Another one I have seen people use (I know someone that even does all their data modelling in it next to their thoughts):

(java, open source). Works nice (or used to) on Leopard/OS-X, haven't tried it in recent times.
