WikiMindMap

Dave Gray over at Communication Nation mentions the WikiMindMap and I thought I should too if for no other reason than to show one more use of Wikipedia. I typed in the word “design” and the results are in the image (click on it for a larger view). Keep in mind though that I opened up a lot of the nodes. I’ll admit that the lack of outside links for the term design is a little weird and if you really wanted to question the validity of wiki’s in general you could make a point, but the idea of the mind map being used for this type of search exploration is helpful. I’m a big fan of opening up information to show context which I think this does a good job of. My only misgivings of the tool is that it’s in flash.
