The 'Laws of Mind Mapping' were originally devised by Tony Buzan when he codified the use of imagery, colour and association and coined the phrase 'Mind Mapping'. In the intervening 30 plus years, there have been many variations on the original 'Mind Map ' and the widespread usage of mapping software of various sorts, has dramatically changed what is possible. >> Click here to go to a video that provides a rapid (99 second) overview of how to Mind Map. (Note that you will be asked for your e-mail address so that you can view the video free of charge). The summary below is based on Buzan's structure (a 'Mind Mapping, how to' - details available in his many books) but we believe that whilst this structure is great for establishing well structured maps that can be used in many different ways, variations on these rules or 'laws' are often sensible and appropriate - as long as they are based on an understanding of why the laws exist and what they are trying to help the mind mapper to achieve.
Tech breakthroughs are reshaping retail shopping in the USASANTA CLARA, Calif. – Nola Donato has seen the future of retail, and it is in a Magic Mirror. The Intel scientist has designed a high-tech mirror that shows how clothes look on a consumer who simply stands in front of an LCD monitor. Parametric technology simulates body type and how fabrics fit — based on weight, height and measurements. Think of it as a digital fitting room. The convergence of smartphone technology, social-media data and futuristic technology such as 3-D printers is changing the face of retail in a way that experts across the industry say will upend the bricks-and-mortar model in a matter of a few years. "The next five years will bring more change to retail than the last 100 years," says Cyriac Roeding, CEO of Shopkick, a location-based shopping app available at Macy's, Target and other top retailers. Within 10 years, retail as we know it will be unrecognizable, says Kevin Sterneckert, a Gartner analyst who follows retail technology. Retail's revolution Driving the future
Bienvenue sur le site mindmapping.com !PoppletEtherPad: Realtime Collaborative Text Editingfrontline: the persuaders: neuromarketingBut 30 years after the commercials debuted, neuroscientist Read Montague was still thinking about them. Something didn't make sense. If people preferred the taste of Pepsi, the drink should have dominated the market. What he found was the first data from an entirely new field: neuromarketing, the study of the brain's responses to ads, brands, and the rest of the messages littering the cultural landscape. Neuromarketing, in one form or another, is now one of the hottest new tools of its trade. Getting an update on research is one thing; for decades, marketers have relied on behavioral studies for guidance. That last piece of research is particularly worrisome to anti-marketing activists, some of whom are already mobilizing against the nascent field of neuromarketing. Ruskin might be consoled by the fact that many neuromarketers still don't know how to apply their findings. With Commercial Alert's campaign thwarted for now, BrightHouse is moving forward.

As it has become possible to study the living brain, researchers have begun to watch decision making processes at work. Findings could carry implications for our sense of agency and for moral responsibility and the role of consciousness in general. Relevant findings include the pioneering study by Benjamin Libet and its subsequent redesigns; these studies were able to detect activity related to a decision to move, and the activity appears to begin briefly before people become conscious of it. Other studies try to predict activity before overt action occurs. Taken together, these various findings show that at least some actions - like moving a finger - are initiated unconsciously at first, and enter consciousness afterward. A monk meditates.

Comment s'organiser au quotidien - La méthode du Mindmapping - Le Journal du Blogueur | Le Journal du BlogueurToujours en quête d’optimisation de mon temps, j’ai récemment découvert une technique d’organisation assez sympathique et efficace. Je vais vous en faire part dans cet article. Ici, nous verrons ce qu’est le Mindmapping, son utilité, comment s’organiser au quotidien à l’aide de cet outil ainsi que les différents services/logiciels dédiés à cet effet. Le Mindmapping, ou « cartes heuristiques » est une façon de regrouper, cartographier et structurer ses idées en les représentant sous forme arborescente, avec des liens sémantiques. À première vue, une Mindmap ressemble à un dessin avec une idée centrale, suivie de plusieurs branches accompagnées de dessins représentant chaque sujet/concept. Voici quelques exemples de Mindmap: La première question que l’on pose souvent est la suivante: en quoi le Mindmapping est-il meilleur qu’une prise de note traditionnelle ? Cette façon de noter est beaucoup plus ludique, amusante et agréable à utiliser. Connectez vos deux hémisphères ! Pour aller plus loin
