MindManager for Sharepoint; First thoughts

Mindjet have just announced a new product; MindManager for SharePoint. I’ve downloaded the trial and set it up with a SharePoint site associated with a hosted Exchange account I run

This gives me an ideal opportunity to investigate how I can effectively integrate my exchange account (not my main domain for e-mail etc.), SharePoint and all the other tools I currently use. I need to investigate the ability to export a SharePoint map to HTML to use as my dashboard.

I’m going to write a full review of MindManager for SharePoint (and probably a quick ‘HOW-TO’ on how I’ve integrated all my accounts!) once I’ve had a chance to play and understand the full features, but in short I’m loving what the product can do with SharePoint and very excited by the potential of the product.

The biggest issue for me is the fact that the cost to upgrade my copy of MM7 to MM8 for SharePoint is double the cost of the standard MM8. I appreciate in a corporate environment that makes full use of SharePoint this is not unreasonable, but as a (currently unemployed) hobbyist who wants to ‘tinker’ it’s beyond me, thank heavens for 30 day trials!
