While I was toying with the idea of a Magazine for the Mind Mapping Community, I bounced the idea off friends and family only to find that they could not conceive what I was talking about.
Most still buy printed copies of magazines in areas that tickle their fancy. Granted, the number of magazines they purchase per year has dropped, but most still like the idea of a few magazines lying around the house that could be picked up and read when and where they want to. (Sometimes in the smallest room of the house).
Even though magazines and tablets were made for each other, as a beautiful, glossy magazine renders extremely well on a tablet, digital magazines still haven’t really taken off. And I can understand why.
Too many people have been exposed to software and applications that call themselves magazines, but are just a digital collection of posts, similar to a blog, but more visually appealing.
They are simply not magazines.
Getting a magazine on your tablet device has also traditionally been just too difficult. You most likely need to click on something, download and wait before you can read the magazine. It’s not just ‘there’ for you read when and where you would like.
Given this information and the fact that I wanted to give you a Magazine Experience, I asked myself what constitutes a magazine.
Or simply, what makes something a magazine?
Here are some of my thoughts:
If the above are qualities of a magazine, then Using Mind Maps is definitely a magazine.
But it’s a magazine with a twist.
Imagine having a magazine that:
Put all these characteristics into one pot and you end up with something very special. And, this is exactly what we did!
