After some research, I could finally find the repository on github for this project, so, for anyone who might also be interested, here it is:


The email shown in the org buffer in the video did not exist, but searching for the name of the app ("hiPster mindmapping"), surprinsigly brought back the github repo.

Thank you David for making it open source!

Hi Nick,

Good catch, thanks. I'll try contacting him directly and will share my findings here.

If you examine the video closely, it looks like it's a Mac application,
the author is David Griffiths and the application *might* be iMapMinder
(also available on Windows, but not on Linux - non-free both in the
freedom and beer sense). All of this is pure guesswork on my part
and might very well be completely wrong.

If David Griffiths is indeed the author, I don't remember seeing him on
the ML.  You'll have to find another way to contact him. The org file
shows an email address of

      dgriffiths AT fas.harvard.edu

but that might not be valid any longer (the video was posted in 2011).
