I recently discovered Compendium .
This is basically a mind-mapping software with very innovative ideas about wicked problems and how to adress them. This is also a quite old open source soft that looks not supported anymore. (want to install it? prepare for hard work…)
However, there is many ideas in it that TinderBox team might (should) be inspired by.
In particular, they distinguish 3 kinds of relationships:
- Associative: It is basically what we do by linking two notes in TB8
- Categorical: This is what we do using same metadata for various notes
- And Transclusive. It means basically that same note can be read in different contexts (maps): all copies of this notes have intrinsec transclusive relationship.
Transclusive might not count for 1/3rd of thinking potential but missing this is still a strong cut I guess.
I think that TinderBox has every thing to adress this question.
I would be happy to hear what you guys think about that.
