Mind maps FTW

I have recently come to realize that I just love mind maps. Paper and pen doesn’t work well for me for drawing mind maps due to high refactoring costs and there’s always the limitation on canvas size.

Currently I’m reading The Agile Samurai book and decided to use MindNode for repetition and organizing thoughts. Couple of chapters in and I like it: I’m going slower and thinking more about the big picture.

The Agile Samurai mind map, few chapters in and without private context information added

With mind maps it really helps to have a big screen.

The Agile Samurai

The Agile Samurai

The mailman had dropped me a copy of The Agile Samurai. Interesting book and laughing out loud for “Unrealistic plan -> Miracle -> Working software” graphic. Just skimmed through the book and it’s just what I was looking for. Can’t wait for the weekend!

iCloud

Apple knows how to design user interfaces so that you are hooked. Let’s take iCloud setup on Mac OS X for example.

I was figuring out how it works and taking it to use for the first time. The iCloud preference dialog stated there was 5 GB available and that my Documents & Data was selected. My first reaction was that I don’t want to sync all my Documents & Data – I was just want to figure out what this and if I could use it for syncing iPhoto.

I clicked on the Documents & Data to disable it.

“If you turn off Documents & Data, all documents stored in iCloud will be removed from this Mac.”

What are you removing from my Mac? My Documents folder?

Lesson: if the user tries to stop using your service then make vague threads about deleting user’s data to ensure loyalty.
