The spatial map mind mapping project was born on Vulcano, “an open community, where experimentation is encouraged to flourish, and the consequences of applying common sense and bottom-up self regulation, enable creativity to mature.” David Orban the founder of Vulcano told me:
”I am very proud of this concrete example of its fertility. An idea is just a humble starting point, as we know, and before we can measure its validity, in the physical world there are enormous hurdles to clear, many of which don’t relate to the idea itself, but are inherent to the rules we are accustomed to obey. In online worlds on the other hand, many of these barriers do not exist, and ideas can evolve very quickly, as they are more easily tested in their utility. I fully expect Vulcano to give birth to many other excellent ideas as well, and my best wishes to Spatial Map and all the others is to succeed, and progress!”
Malachi Mulligan is working on another mind map project on Vulcano. And, see also the opening of the Pyramid Cafe, another awesome manifestation of Vulcano creativity (read more here in Italian and here in English).
