Google Online Tools – Do you have a “Plan B”?

Mindmeister – A Free & Simple Brainstorming Tool

Last month I read this really nice post over at youmoz about a website called Mindmeister.

You can share your "mind maps" with other users, and they can add to and edit your map. All revisions are tracked and can be easily undone.

Great WordPress Plugin: Redirection

Enter Redirection.
