Instant Sproingification!

No, this is not a post about boners or Natalie Portman, sorry.

I make no apologies for being a geek who gets jacked up about geeky things. I love technology, I love new ways to use and innovate using technology to help educate, explore and entertain.

And I love me some sproingy visualization. Sites like Liveplasma or the Visual Thesaurus are just fun to play with and teach through visualizations.

Well, now you can make your own sproingy visualization via Text2MindMap. It is simple, cool and can really help to demonstrate the relationships between sets of things. Oh, and you can download the resulting sproingy goodness.

I can see this being really useful for a family tree to easily show how everyone is related or to visualize the complexity that is the school district I work for. Heck, it'd be fun to use it to categorize music but there'd be an awful lot of work in doing that.

I'm going to play around with it some more and, presuming I can create something worthwhile, will post my sproingy up here.
