Jude Cooke: Do any of those have the organic capacity of the one bv being demonstrated
minhaaj: true. writing it with your own hand, shifts the learning curve further to right.
Bee (Brazil): much easier by hand...but then cannot link or collaborate on them
Bron: yes the online tools all have some contraints that irk you
minhaaj: good point Bee. Do you mean in web 2.0 and online context, freemind is more productive?
StaffMember: once scanned, and digitised, we can collaborate, by printing and drawing again, the scanning and sharing again
Nellie Deutsch: my writing is terrible these days because I hardly use it
Nellie Deutsch: I meaan my hand writing
StaffMember: i think that is a major problem I find that too I hardly ever hand write anymore
Bee (Brazil): the online tools are still very stiff and linear
StaffMember: yes we tried to do one on the whiteboard here but it was very time consuming!
Bee (Brazil): maybe those who have a tablet and a stylus
minhaaj: its been couple of years since i have written with hands. Do pretty much everything online.
Jude Cooke: how about using a graphics tablet\
Bee (Brazil): but drawing with a mouse is gross
StaffMember: very true
Bee (Brazil): and the touch pad is even worse
Jude Cooke: graphics tablet?
Bee (Brazil): for artists
Bee (Brazil): beautiful
StaffMember: I haven't used one I have to admit
