      After the 9/11 destruction of the New York City World Trade Center, Lisa
      Frigand a project specialist in economic development for the city's utility
      company Con Edison, was closely involved with the rebuilding of downtown
      Manhattan. Her efforts were often stymied by the web of individuals, groups
      and organizations involved. This could have been overwhelming, but fortunately
      she knew Mind Mapping specialist, David Hill, also of Con Edison. He had
      already introduced her to Mind Mapping. Ms. Frigand and Mr. Hill worked
      together gathering information from hundreds of sources including reports,
      brochures, magazines and the Internet, to create a poster-sized Mind Map of
      all the parties involved in the restoration of lower Manhattan. The main
      branches they created were government, civic, infrastructure, properties,
      victims and memorials. They also identified what was created after 9/11. When
      the map was completed, it showed everyone involved and their connections in a
      brain-friendly manner. People involved with the rebuilding effort were able to
      see, not only the big picture, but also the detail of this enormous effort.

      The power of the map is that it shows something very complex in a way that
      makes it clear.

      Many of our problems today are cause by complexity.

      One of the causes of the current economic crisis is the fact that very complex
      financial instruments were developed and the people who should have understood
      them didn't.

      Perhaps if more people were using mind maps we wouldn't be in our current
      mess.


      Enjoy,

      David
