“Modern knowledge visualization tools may have started as simple drawing tools, but they have evolved into collaborative environments that help teams share information effectively, develop shared mental models and provide context in a way no other tool can.”
- Daniel W. Rasmus, KMWorld, October 2013
Our Brain users are doing some amazing stuff! With TheBrain’s visual links, disconnected content, complex ideas and multiple information sources can be brought together intelligently and intuitively. In this month’s issue of KMWorld Dan Rasmus explores mission critical visualization and how organizations are using tools like TheBrain to do great things. He highlights the extraordinary work of the Joint Council on Thoracic Surgery, who is advancing education to surgeons across the world with their TeamBrain.
Dr. Craig Baker, Chief of Cardiac Surgery LAC+USC and Vice Chair of Surgical Education at USC’s Keck School of Medicine, has created an impressive Brain to educate and empower the next generation of surgeons.
Also covered in KMWorld is Conrad Clyburn, CEO of MedForeSight. His company helps accelerate the translation of medical technology from the lab to market.
Conrad’s Brain graphically “connects the dots” between over 35,000 best practices, pioneering academic medical research, global subject matter experts, interlinked funding programs, and industry players. It’s a lot to keep track of, but it is easy, because it’s all in his Brain!
Read about TheBrain customer applications and other visualization technologies in the full article on KMWorld online and on page 8 in this month’s October edition.
I am always both humbled and inspired by the amazing structures of knowledge that Brain users create. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Daniel Gorin, CEO phase-6 while he was in Los Angeles. While every user’s Brain is unique, Daniel’s Brain was very interesting, not only because of the scope of his Thoughts, but because he had one of the most impressive Link Type lists I’ve seen. Below is a video that shows some of his Brain and key discussion points we covered during our meeting.
Welcome to the world of Thought relationships. As you may have noticed the layout of Thoughts in TheBrain isn’t random. Every time you click on a Thought things change, but they are always displayed in certain areas of your display. These areas represent different types of relationships. Let’s start with the basics and then move on to more details.
Intro to Parent, Child, Jump, and Sibling
Relationships are always displayed around and relative to the Active Thought (the Thought in the center.) This gives you a view point or perspective to view and derive other relationships
Using TheBrain for Project Management
Driving your ideas to completion can be a challenge especially when you are dealing with multiple data sources, complex and sometimes ill-defined requirements in addition to many stake holders. However, creating a complete context for all your project goals and information makes it easy to manage everything and bring projects to a successful completion.
Most of us spend our time juggling an array of projects for all aspects of our life. Creating a Brain with both business and personal Thoughts can help you get the big picture on everything. Moreover, you will gain instant access to any idea or file in seconds, making multitasking a breeze!
This blog entry features a “Template Brain for Everything” to download and will provide some useful ideas for creating that one Brain that has it all.
TheBrain Cloud Services is host to millions of digital Thoughts from users around the world. We are super excited about our latest release to the cloud that give you even more online authoring features as well as faster response time and synchronization.

Adding More Meaning to Your Brain
There are so many possibilities for classification and organization of information in TheBrain. If you are just creating a new Brain, the first step is to map out your ideas with Thought relationships. Once this is done, you can add another compelling level of insight to your knowledge map with Thought Types and Tags.
