Harry Potter Brain

My PersonalBrain is an indispensable resource for emergencies, projects and IT management, providing the broad picture on key relationships and connections so I can react faster and make better decisions with all the right information just when I need it.

TheBrain Technologies announces that Christopher T. David, Associate Vice President of Catapult Technology, will be debuting his digital Brain at Macworld 2009. His session "Mind Mapping Your Mac" is on Friday, January 9, 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., Room 131, Hall E, Conference Session IT851.

David uses PersonalBrain to manage his complex world of IT consulting. He was Chief Technology Officer for Arlington County, Virginia--the onsite CTO for Arlington's nationally recognized emergency management response to the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon. Like most people, he has to synthesize information from many sources, all important in different contexts.

David uses PersonalBrain to apply dynamic mind mapping techniques that help him visually understand his world and keep everything at his fingertips, no matter where it originates. PersonalBrain organizes his projects, people, events and documents. A single conceptual view offers intuitive and elegant information discovery. Relationships between IT services, components, resources and people are captured in his Brain, making them instantly accessible.

"PersonalBrain is a true mind mapping solution because it enables you to move beyond basic linear categorization and connect pieces of information together associatively. A vast network of knowledge evolves in your digital Brain that you can see and leverage for everyday use," said Christopher David, Associate Vice President at Catapult Technology, "My PersonalBrain is an indispensable resource for emergencies, projects and IT management, providing the broad picture on key relationships and connections so I can react faster and make better decisions with all the right information just when I need it."

David's session at Macworld will cover:

  • Creating a visual context for your business projects and creative endeavors
  • Visualizing complex relationships with examples spanning from IT crisis management to the world of Harry Potter
  • Gaining insight and clarity in an ever-changing cross platform world
  • Organizing people, projects, IT systems and ideas
  • Integrating local files and external intranet and Web links
  • Editing and customizing your information environment

PersonalBrain software is used for business and personal applications. Like many PersonalBrain users, Christopher David also has a fun and imaginative Brain that represents his hobbies and interests.

MacWorld attendees will also see how David tracks the world of Harry Potter's using the PersonalBrain. Created with his 10-year old daughter, this Brain has become quite popular on TheBrain discussion boards, where PersonalBrain users worldwide have downloaded David's whimsical and very popular "Harry Potter Brain".
