Mind Mapping Options

MindMeister

Pros

Allows real-time collaboration

Information stored online

Embedded version is updated automatically

Popular on del.icio.us

recommended on Hive Five

Cons

Free version is not sufficient

Maybe not sophisticated enough

3rd most searched on Google insights, but way behind freemind, and not growing that fast

Gut instinct

Probably a decent option, but only if paying. Collaboration is strong point

XMind

Pros

2nd most searched on Google insights

Recommended on Hive Five

Cons

Cannot automatically update embedded public files (They're more like just static snapshots)

Gut instinct

Possibly a good solution, but sharing sort of sucks

FreeMind

Pros

Most searched on Google insights

Java-based

Cons

Not good at collaboration

Gut instinct

Probably decent, but won't be good for collaboration (and possibly even embedding?)

3D Topicscape (Pro)

Pros

Live link (e.g., insert an outlook task)

Gut instinct

Too complicated and doesn't have what I need

Mind42.com

Seems 2nd fiddle to MindMeister, and likely to go out of business

Gut instinct

No

Mindjet Mindmanager

Pros

Supposedly very polished and good

Cons

Very expensive

Gut instinct

Too expensive to try this year for lab solution

Bubble.us

Didn't really like it and worried that it will fail

MindOmo

Looks comparable to MindMeister, but sharing doesn't look as good didn't try it
