Mind Maps from Books

When I’m reading technical books, it helps me to retain the contents if I draw a mindmap of them as I’m going along. Not something I do very often as it’s also very time consuming! I use Freemind to draw the mindmaps, but I wanted a way to display an interactive JavaScript map online.

The JavaScript InfoVis toolkit has a really cool Space Tree that works quite well. I wrote a short JavaScript to translate HTML exported from Freemind into JSON and hey presto!
