Notes to Collaborators

Feel free to add anything. I've just given a starting point, not exhaustive. go in any direction you like:)

Total # Collaborators: 17 and growing:)

At the bottom of the screen you'll see "Currently Editing". If there's a name there, that means you're editing in real time with a fellow geek:)

ATTN Ryan: let's organize a color-code of some sort, so we can leave notes/comments/questions (hds)

How about having a "commentary" Node? Or use the icons.

we could have a separate commentary node or use purple for all commentary anywhere on the map. what does everyone think? -Ryan

love using icons! Maybe we get set up a node as a key code for icons -Ryan

ATTN Ryan: can it be visible who created what? (hds)

I used purple! If there is another way to do it, let me know. - Turil, Maybe we could use purple for all commentary and just sign our names?-Ryan, Right now Mindmeister has no good way of showing who did what, though that would rock! -Ryan

ah...SO, if you create a new node, it will assign you a color, but if you add to an existing node it keeps the color of the original writer ...I think-ryan, that's default, but you can change the new node's colour subsequently (hds)

HEY EVERYONE: add your initials to your work, and a comment icon "?" or "i" if you touch on others' work, so we can track this monster genealogically (RO/hds)

report bugs using the feedback button or in their forums - remember it's beta:)

the zoom out tool is very helpful

if someone is editing with you, click on their name to set up skype conference:)

ATTN: it would seem there's a limited number of characters per node (hds)

ATTN: could we build a list of websites/teachers/sanghas that are making an effort toward bD 2.0 (hds)

I like this idea!!! TMcG

i agree completely, ryan. voila! (hds)

YOU CAN SEE CHANGES NOW:) use the change button on the pallette. I'm guessing it'll note changes here on out. everything before this might have my name or show "myself".

let's see if this change is attributed to someone else (hds)

Sounds good. Maybe it would be better to do this in a social bookmarking group rather than on the mindmap? RO

Guiding Principles of bD 2.0 (hds)

Your own list of 5 key elements HERE:

Sharing & Collaborating / Preserving teachings yet modifying the manner they are stored and presented... / -TMcG

For ideas from Web 2.0 see MindMap (hds)

For a basic level criticism, see Nicholas Carr's "Amorality of Web 2.0" (hds)

But bD 2.0, fortunately, is not about Web 2.0 ! (hds)
