This mind map was made as a training for the live mind mapping I will do on TEDxDelft on the 7th of november. I used the presentation (viewed almost 400,000 times) of Harald Haas (“wireless data from every light bulb”, TEDGlobal 2011, Edinburgh).
Harald’s talk lasted nearly 13 minutes, I clocked at 14 minutes. The reason for this is that I started one minute later. I always do that when live mind mapping. It gives me a better opportunity to grasp what the talk is about. If you start immediately you might get the wrong main branches forcing you to start over. I used one extra minute to polish the mind map up. I managed to squeeze in visuals while mind mapping. My impression so far is that a 12 minutes talk is easier to mind map than a 18 minutes talk.
Great talk of course using visible light for wireless data transfer. The association that kept coming up while mind mapping was a quote of Dylan when he arrived in England in 1965: “Always carry a light bulb with you”. Prophetic words indeed.
