My fellow Tablet PC MVP Warner Crocker is helping out the fine folks at the Note Talkers blog by acting as a judge in a contest they're currently running that offers some dandy prizes. Here are the basics:
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
And the prize for each of the winning entries? A veritable grab bag of goodies:
The winner of each category will receive:
- A fully licensed copy of MindManager Pro 6 (Value: $349)

Visit the Note Talkers site for all the details on how to play. If you haven't tried your hand at mind mapping with Mindjet MindManager, this should provide all the incentive you need. A 21-day trial of the software can be downloaded at the Mindjet web site. The same applies for Camtasia, an amazingly easy to use but extremely powerful tool for creating screencasts. A 30-day trial of Camtasia can be had at the TechSmith web site. Betsy Weber, TechSmith's Chief Evangelist is also a judge.
Take your most creative shot. This is an amazing opportunity to discover some great software and maybe win one of these very generous prize packages.
