I’m trying some new stuff because I had an idea that ‘The Brain’ would be good for encapsulating and displaying a concept that is as web like as I have found interlibrary loan to be (yeah, this is library stuff). But ‘The Brain’ is not so accessible when you’re traveling from computer to computer. So, I wanted to scope out some other ways of concept mapping. I found bubbl.us. It’s pretty good and a free account gets three maps worth of storage that you can share and link to. (Yes, this is all about Interlibrary Loan – it’s what I do)
What I’m really after, now that I’ve been shopping around, is a way to insert the finished mind map into my web site. There I could host and share it forever (even password protect it if I wanted). Unfortunately bubbl.us ‘s HTML export just looks like a colorful list with anchor tags:
So I am still looking. Though, to be completely on the up and up I have to admit that a pro version of the brain offers an HTML export that creates a working online brain when loaded into a web server. It might very well be what I am looking for if I could just be satisfied with what I’ve already found.
