Content management is often about more than the creation. It is also about the comprehension and application of the information that will be used. Just as everyone learns differently it becomes important to have different methods to seek and create information. I’m very textual – often if I just write or type something it will be in my head. However, if you show me an exploded diagram or a visual representation I struggle to comprehend. Mind Maps are different.
Mind Maps allow me to shift from text to graphics in a way that works for me. Other innovations in visual representations and content creation are starting to hit the scene. One such innovations is TrailMeme.
Will graphics overcome the barriers to finding relevant information? Probably not but these innovations may give content creators and information seekers powerful options that overcome the limits of two-word searching.
