This podcast, an audio tour of a visual product, if from an interview with Harlan Hugh and Shelley Hayduk of The Brain Technologies at their offices in beautiful Marina Del Rey, California.
As I've written before, Personal Brain is an amazing tool for mapping your brain. You might even call it a true mind mapping tool. Listen to the podcast and you hear why I think so. I plan to make The Brain a key component to my personal knowledge management tool kit along with Lotus Notes, MindManager, and other excellent productivity tools.
