Below is a clickable button that will take you to a site called thebrain.com. The Brain is a collaborative, interactive, and engaging versatile platform that takes mind mapping to a new level with a simple drag and drop interface. It can be modified on the fly with the web interface or it can be configured in more detail from a local workstation application tool.

I am not affiliated with this organization other than an avid customer who is very excited about their innovation. Their platform was discovered during my college journey when I needed a simple method beyond OneNote to organize, categorize, and share (if I want to). Since my first year in college, several brains have been created. The button below was created as an example of the power it has to offer.
