The “Split Attention Effect” from Cognitive Load Theory demands that an annotation needs to be close to the item it refers to. I wonder if this is still true if the annotation can be reached by a saccadic eye movement.
Many people are enthusiastic about the ‘Big Picture’ attitude. Some even quote Dyson’s distinction between birds (who “fly high”) and frogs (who “live in the mud”).
The gem of Sousanis’ book “Unflattening” was that it does a great job explaining why the right hemisphere mode (“all-at-once”) lives from relations: Basically, it argues that the eye is “dancing and darting”, i.e. by its saccadic motion (palpation by means of the gaze) it captures only small fragments at a time, and it is our imagination that needs to combine them into vision.
I often wanted to share the great experience of using my favorite tool and to show off its condensed overview. Now, a read mode format is available that can be viewed without my tool.
Why do great visual thinkers still use paper and pen, and forgo the powers of an electronic canvas? Watching Dave Gray in a conversation about interaction design clarified it to me.
An interesting post by Keith Lyons about Mathematical elegance inspired my to collate some sources that have intrigued me for quite a while: “Aesthetics as Pre-linguistic Knowledge”, intuition vs. visualization/ illustration/ exemplification, and space in soccer.
My tool is like a cMap tool, plus a notes facility like that of PersonalBrain (plus, of course, many left deficiencies!)
Here is the link to my favorite think tool. Later more.
Jenny’s discussion with Howard about the internal resistance against mind mapping, caused me to question my own reasons: why am I convinced that mapping is worth the effort, and why does “linear thinking” sound so deterrent to me? It has to do with constraints.
