WHAT IS THIS MAP? This mind map ist my "biomap" + business graph (Get your own "biomapster", just cloning this one - click "+" for more info), After some frustration with profile pages on Social Networks I decided to gain full control with this "biomap" (biography mind map, CV map). The icredible policy of Facebook during the last years has made everyone aware about the loss of control now ..., My searching for alternatves lead me to this "format innovation". It is given to the world of commons. The basic idea is give you control about your social and business graph. You are allowed to copy structure and style without asking me. Anyway, I would appreciate, if you reference and link back., I like privacy, so there are a lot of things you will *not* find here. It is just a starting point to make networking easier, since you do not have to lookup my name in all the social networks and media, or in some stupid "people search engine", which delivers so much spam., Be a biomapster! You are the network. You own the network., biomapster = biographical and profile mind map user, Just build your own or import this .mind file to have a quick start!, To facilitate the findability of all the biomaps on the web, please include the word "biomapster" in your mindmap., web addresses of this public mind map: =, Just started this Mind Map in May 2010. Please give me feedback to make things better (schroll at strategiclabs de).


Interested in social innovation, new patterns of living sustainable and resilient

As a foresight expert I feel some special responsibility

obligation to ... enlighten about the chances and risks in the future ahead

Understanding the "social wave" as a chance to catalyze and stabilize the global systemic transformation ahead
