•Inspiration 7.0 - My favorite cross-platform software for building clouds and trees has been upgraded. Inspiration is a flow-charting application, and has been my long-term tool for doing TOC logic diagrams like clouds and trees and branches. Since upgrading to Mac OS X, it has been the only tool I use that lured me back into the Classic Mac environment. A new version (#7) has just been released that will now let me stay in OS X. (It's also available for Windoze as well, and files created on one platform work on the other.)
If you go to the site via the link here, don't be put off by Inspiration's targeting of the educational market. The fact that it is a favorite in schools is probabaly related to the reason I like it so much -- it works in a far more point-and-click, click-and-type intutive manner than other tools like WinFlow/MacFlow and that very clunky Visio. If you're interested in building TOC logic diagrams or in Mind-Mapping as a note-taking process.
