How your computer can help you think

Here's a nice video tutorial from Thomas Teepe about using mind-mapping software for problem-solving:

His technique of using a "mentor map" which captures abstract process to help build a more concrete "work map" is nice, and neatly addresses the problem of "starting with a blank screen".

Building your own "mentor map" is a great way of organizing the processes that one finds personally useful, and the overall process looks like it should be easy to learn.

Note that whereas in mind-mapping tools one must be use multiple windows, all of Austhink's products support multiple maps per workspace.

When we add user-editable template support to bCisive Online, we should also consider including a starter "mentor map", as an out-of-the-box template.
