This column looks into projects and current affairs in the world of free software from the perspective of the GNU Project and the FSF. In this issue, we focus on mind maps and the demand for free software at the European Commission’s 6th Framework Program.

Mind mapping involves studying relationships among various terms and thoughts, and visualizing those relationships to provide a better overview. Thus, a mind map reflects a very personal and specific view of the person who created it. KDissert If you are interested in learning more about the underlying techniques and concepts of mind mapping, the Wikipedia entry at [1] is certainly a big help. Kdissert creator Thomas Nagy takes mind mapping a step farther with his contribution: in contrast to classical mind mapping applications, such as View Your Mind (vym) or Freemind [3], KDissert uses mind maps to generate documents.

    I have put in my time as the news writer for this magazine at various moments over the last 11 years, and one way or another, the European Commission has always been part of the big stories.
