The Research Process X Slatebox

A new mind-mapping toy - Slatebox

+ colorful and can easily personalize
+ has real-time updates on my iPad next to me (good for virtual groupwork)
+ easy to embed (and republishes automatically)
+ can 'leap' from node to node providing non-linear connections

- interface a little clunky at first
- iPad interface readjusts itself a bit much

Take Away:
A new toy to put in the toolbox
