Some pretty cool things launched yesterday in the wonderful world of Mindjet.
First, Mindjet’s own Gaelen O’Connell and the founders of Note Talkers have orchestrated a really nice competition for everyone and anyone who takes notes (excluding judges and employees of the sponsoring organizations), with a prize package worth nearly $1200. The contest is being done in collaboration with Note Talkers, which notes that:
"Note Talkers, Mindjet, and our affiliated Sponsors value innovation. That’s why we’re looking to you, to show us your creative talents! Enter our Note Talker’s MindManager Map Contest and you could walk away with some of the best tools for supporting and increasing your innovative drive. Here’s how it works:
We’re inviting readers to design and submit up to three MindManager map entries (one per category per person, please) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org…
– A MindManager map* about “Note Taking”
– A MindManager map* that describes “What’s on your Mind?”
– A Screencast** demonstrating MindManager"
Also, Mindjet’s UK and European offices have launched a really nice way to people to manage World Cup 2006 brackets, learn more about all the teams, and find their way to the dozens of stadiums where the games will be played. As we note on our World Cup 2006 page:
"The 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™ commences in less than 100 days. Start preparing for the “event of the year” today with access to all important information about the teams, matches and stadiums. The ultimate World Cup 2006 Map is available for you here."
