There are many 2D mind mapping packages out there, but for the heavy lifting you need 3D Topicscape. 3D Topicscape is different. 3D Topicscape is better. Users have made great use of Topicscape's ability to have tens of thousands of files in one database. A single topic may have many files attached (hundreds if you wish) and can still be handled easily. It therefore has greatly superior searching, compared with other mind mapping software that forces you to break maps down into more than one, for big projects. If you choose to place files under Topicscape's direct control, the Topicscape can be moved from PC to PC without breaking links.

Tag clouds are those boxes of words that you sometimes see on blogs and social networking websites . The words are a collection of the words most commonly used in whatever parameters set forth by the tag cloud. For example, you might make a tag cloud of all of the most popular words used in your blog posts in the past month. Some of the words are shown in bigger text or different colors than the others which represents the fact that those words are used more often than the on the other words on the list. Tag clouds are a terrific way to get information about a site. They reveal which topics are being discussed on that site most often in any given period of time.

Scott Brinker recently published a great blog post covering 7 business models for Linked Data . The post is well worth a read and reviews the potential for both direct and indirect revenue generation from a range of different business models.
Outliers like Factual, WolframAlpha, Daytum, FlowingData, and InfoChimps have proven that painting our world in data (and metadata) is a rather valuable endeavor for any business. In a previous post I wrote about key concepts in data marketing. There has been some great discussion along those lines, and some understandable apprehension. I wanted to follow-up and discuss how the proliferation of data will impact more than just marketing. Data Democratization
Many Fortune 500 and mid-size enterprises are funding Hadoop test/dev projects for Big Data analytics, but question how to integrate Hadoop into their standard enterprise architecture. For example, Joe Cunningham, head of technology strategy and innovation at credit card giant Visa, told the audience at last year’s Hadoop World that he would like to see Hadoop evolve from an alpha/beta environment into mainstream use for transaction analysis, but has concerns about integration and operations management. What’s been missing for Big Data analytics has been a LAMP (Linux, Apache HTTP Server, MySQL and PHP) equivalent. Fortunately, there’s an emerging LAMP-like stack for Big Data aggregation, processing and analytics that includes:
