12 Royalty free image search engines This is something that comes up quite a lot, as people are always looking for images that they can use without fear of payment or copyright restrictions. There's a nice new collection of such engines over at the Hootsuite blog, and I've picked a few of my favourites. Picjumbo It's a nice resource but only has a small number of images (600 or so), but they are of excellent quality. Unsplash is excellent - my search for 'books' returned a lot of results (277) and they were really interesting pictures. Stockvault was another good site, and again I got a fair number of results for books, but the images were rather more boring to be honest.

Well, sadly Cayra became orphan software years ago, so no one from Intalev, the originator of this nice little free package, will reply – I’ve tried several times to contact them because Cayra was open source at one time, and we had a volunteer willing to maintain and enhance it. But Intelev never responded. As I mention here, I saw a comment on Twitter that it doesn’t work on Windows 7. When I wrote that, I didn’t have a Win 7 PC to test it.

TAGSExplorer: Interactively visualising Twitter conversations archived from a Google Spreadsheet Graphs can be a powerful way to represent relationships between data, but they are also a very abstract concept, which means that they run the danger of meaning something only to the creator of the graph.

Everything looks like a graph, but almost nothing should ever be drawn as one. Ben Fry in ‘Visualizing Data’
How to create killer mind maps for solving your problems Chic Thompson, in his new book, What a Great Idea 2.0: Unlocking Your Creativity in Business and in Life, devotes an entire chapter to idea mapping and how to get more out of it. One of the techniques he highlights is utilizing a series of trigger words or phrases to help you improve your effectiveness using mind maps for problem solving. Because mind mapping is based upon leveraging the mind’s powerful associative capabilities, I think this technique is particularly useful. In Thompson’s vernacular, a trigger word is the central word or concept that the middle of your mind map. He encourages the reader to generate several mind maps utilizing the following trigger words or phrases: When solved… This phrase refers to a desirable future state, and helps your mind to a picture what your situation will look like when the problem is solved.
