The Connections Journal
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“Do you use mind-maps?”
“Yes and no.
Yes, in that I love the idea behind the system.
No, because I find the system a bit restrictive.”
“Restrictive in what way?”
“The mind-mapping system represents things with a tree-like structure, starting from one central point. That is useful, but I very often find myself wanting to connect the different branches. For me, a more useful model is the network.
So I don’t use mind maps, I use what I call connections-maps.”
“You like connecting things.”
“I love connecting things.
A recent idea of mine is to start a journal just for that. I call it the Connections Journal.“
