Description: A Java Program for creating and viewing Mindmaps
 Taking the Concept-Mapping approach to Human-Computer Interface design.
 A mind mapper, and at the same time an easy-to-operate hierarchical editor
 with strong emphasis on folding. These two are not really two different
 things, just two different descriptions of a single application. Often used
 for knowledge and content management.

Wulf Credo:
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
