Lessons for start-up companies, learned from TC50

These are the lessons I summarized by attending the TC50 conference. At the meantime, Adam Lindemann, CEO of Imindi, has written a well Imindi graph of his experience.

To save time, in this post I only publish my thoughts in Imindi graphs. By clicking "Summary by Yihong" you may watch my thoughts. Moreover, by clicking "Summary by Adam" and then "The Event," readers may see all the thoughts written by Adam Lindemann in his post without the need of browsing away from my site. The mind graph has automatically connected my thoughts to Adam's existing thoughts.

I have spent about 15 minutes to publish my thoughts using Imindi graphs. If I had written a normal blog post that had organized all the thoughts into article, it would have taken me at least an hour and the main points would not have been so clear as it is now. By the way, have I mentioned the connection of my thoughts to Adam's thoughts?

I'm not sure what's the point of this post

Mind Maps have been around for decades, with some pretty awesome tool support

there's no need to call them "Imindi graphs" or to evangelize how Imindi tools help you increase your productivity

ANY mind mapping tool will do this (or better) - I'd rather see a report on how Imindi would provide an advantage over mind mappers that people have been using for decades

Hello there,

Thank you for the question and links.

Sure, you are right. The idea of Imindi is built upon mind maps. It is, however, much more than mind maps. For example, imindi is more about links than about data of mind. I am afraid that I could not disclose more on this topic but you can be sure that it is much more than the traditional mind maps.

But I agree to you. Imindi should, and will try to integrate many of the existing mind mapping tools and they could be very interesting features in this service.
