So, this is just a list of apps?

No, it only appears that way at first.

I was going to diss this but I just realized they are WEB apps. Meaning I can diagram something and then email a link to someone! I would hope!

That's really awesome because putting My Latest Vision into mere English words has proven to be a chore more than once. No, seriously.

I like Thinkature

"gliffy"? Man, that shit might be funnel cakes, but I'm not using anything that sounds like I'm supressing vomit in my mouth.

Also, the Thinkature dudes are incredibly cool and talented. I interviewed with them some time back and was really dazzled by their prowess.

Man, what is up with these web-apps that make you sign up before trying them. I know you want my email address and I'm not giving it too you.

bubbl.us does it right, but letting you play with it before signing up. However, I should be able to share these diagrams without signing up either.

Touch a nerve did we?

You could read it that way, I suppose. You'd have to be trying pretty hard, though.

Red herring.

So, what are these all about then, if they aren't simply browser based apps? Why not enlighten us with the point of your post.

Three things.

First: if it requires Flash, it's not Ajax.

Second: what delmoi said.

Third: here's my chart. Do I get a prize?

Nice one, brett ;)

Just as unintelligible as your own charts, but now with an order of magnitude less efficiency! I loves me the smell of progress.

These are all so narrow! What I want: the graphical equivalent of a pastebin, where I can just draw something and link someone directly to it. No flowcharts, no mindmaps, no sign-ins, just drawing tools. A public, directly-linkable whiteboard.

Anyone know of such a thing?

Also, comapping and Mind42.
