8 Free Mind Map Tools & How to Best Use Them Advertisement Here’s the good news. Finally, we can be like Leonardo da Vinci’s in one small way. No, we are not getting his polymathic superpowers. His penchant for taking free-flowing notes that filled notebooks with diagrams and scribblings is more achievable. Best Supercomputers Still Not Best for Big Data This week, China reclaimed the distinction of running the world’s fastest supercomputer; it last held that first-place ranking for eight months starting in October 2010 with its Tianhe-1A machine. Its new Tianhe-2 (“Milky Way–2”) computer is putting its competition to shame, however, performing calculations about as fast as the most recent No. 2 and No. 3 machines combined, according to Jack Dongarra, one of the curators of the list of 500 most powerful supercomputers and professor of computer science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Murphy chairs the executive committee of an alternative supercomputer benchmark called Graph 500. Named for the mathematical theory behind the study of networks and numbered like its long-established competitor, Top500, Graph 500 quantifies a supercomputer’s speed when running needle-in-a-haystack search problems. It’s no mark against the Tianhe-2’s architects that a No. 1 ranking in Top500 doesn’t yield the highest Graph 500 score too.

Web sites and mind maps - WikIT If you plan and design web sites, mind maps can provide a useful platform because of the ease with which they display structure and links. Websites rarely adopt a pure tree hierarchy however, so the capabilities of concept mapping software can also be useful. Planning web sites Writing content in context Building web sites
