Planning Articles in Tinderbox

Dutch Physicist Joritt Wiersma shows us his first Tinderbox sketch, a plan for a research paper he wants to write.

I like the way this first experiment worked out. The map creates a nice visual representation of how the information that I want to put in the article might be ordered and it gives me a hold how to go from one concept to another.

It's alway fascinating to see how people use spatial hypertext tools like Tinderbox in the field. For years, the only way to study spatial hypertext usage was in the lab; now, we can see all sorts of people using the tools for work.
