Freemind: mindmapping for the inventor

| No TrackBacks
As I went along the process of building my invention's patent, I came up with the problem that the notes in my Lab Notes notebook were starting to be too many too much all over the place and not at all organized. I tried several times to write them down again in an ordered fashion, but then something would happen, etc.

So I decided I need to do some mindmapping.
Years ago for a totally unrelated project I had tried several different tools. One I got to be somewhat happy with was Freemind

Apparently it also can run in less-performant systems besides Linux, is GNU-GPL licensed (thus free to use, copy, etc), and simply works real good. It can output folding HTML, bitmap, SVG, and many many more.

Here is an example, obviously with something that I do not care of losing my international rights on, which is an educational kit for doing electronics, whose main improvement is being solderless - thus uses wire wrap and clamping, instead of soldering components or using a breadboard. For example here my notes on ancient and thus very much out-of patent patents that refer to these technologies, so I can be sure I am not getting into any trouble by using them in a commercial product.
