“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.
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
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.
TheBrain Cloud Service Update Includes:

Use TheBrain for Outstanding Presentations
We had a great webinar today with a ton of questions. Thanks to all attendees for their participation. We focused on how you can use TheBrain as a presentation and persuasion tool for more effective communication before, during and after your meetings. If you missed the webinar, feel free to watch the on-line recording.

“Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.”
As we enjoy the warmer weather and relaxed ambience of summer, the season brings us an opportunity to be inspired and bring new ideas to life. Right now deadlines may not be as pressing as they are at year-end for some businesses, or you might be stepping in for a vacationing colleague, or travelling yourself. All these circumstances can trigger fresh ideas and allow you to explore uncharted territory.
Use TheBrain to make your summer shine, by capturing and growing your creative ideas and projects.
We are a society of overcommitted and far too busy people. Sometimes it can feel like our day is gone before we even get started. With so many responsibilities and projects moving at once it’s critical to manage and control the flow of your information, your time for each project and even the desirability of the projects themselves.
Last month we did a Webinar called “First Things First” that explored how TheBrain can be used for prioritization and focus of projects. Here are a few key principles that we discussed.
So often we have the most amazing ideas but sometimes our plans are only half realized. If we don’t capture key ingredients before they are forgotten or overlooked, our projects won’t reach their full potential.
With TheBrain you can leverage the power of visual thinking to make your goals a reality. Here are seven essential steps to making your creative vision a reality. Be sure to download the template Brain and watch the recorded webinar at the end of this blog entry.
We’re all connected to a vast sea of information, so very, very, connected to: twitter, email, news and social networking web sites, blogs, online trading systems, discussion boards, corporate portals…
With all this information at our fingertips it begs the question:
are we getting smarter with all this data or just bogged down?
Here are a few strategies to master information overload so you can actually use what you have.
There are a wide range of information management tools that can help you get organized. Even just creating a folder of all key documents and web links is helpful for any project manager. However, the problem with your computer’s folder structures is that they are very linear and incapable of representing your multidimensional thought process.
