Al Gore & Bill Gates have one thing in common: Mind Mapping

As we become a more mentally literate society, more and more people are adopting the ultimate mind power tool, Mind Mapping, to activate their entire brain and take great leaps forward in their potential. Interest in our brain power is exploding and many successful international business leaders, politicians, writers and other professionals are endorsing the technique for its benefits in improving productivity. Now with the development of computer Mind Mapping software, these Mind Mappers are provided with new, exciting capabilities which were once a future vision. Al Gore uses Mind Mapping Software to order his thoughts Al Gore, the former US Vice President, is counted amongst those who use Mind Mapping guidelines to support them in their disciplines. The May/June 07 issue of Time Magazine, which features Al Gore on the cover, includes a feature article with a photograph of Al Gore with his project Mind Map in front of him. The article points out that he uses Mind Mapping to help him keep control of his thoughts and that he used Mind Mapping software when working on his recent book.

Indeed, in a recent issue of Newsweek and NBC on the web, Bill Gates, the Chairman of Microsoft, proclaimed that Mind Mappers and Mind Mapping software were the "Road Ahead" and are "leading the way into the next stage of our new information democracy". Extract from Bill Gates’s Newsweek Article "Most of us now live in an 'information democracy'…. But while we've gone a long way toward optimizing how we use information, we haven't yet done the same for knowledge…. But as software gets smarter about how people think and work, it's starting to help them synthesize and manage knowledge, too... new generation of "mind-mapping" software can also be used as a digital "blank slate" to help connect and synthesize ideas and data—and ultimately create new knowledge."
