The Science of Hiding in Plain Sight : http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2004/10/26/02313/946 Steganography is the science of hiding one message inside another message - hiding in plain sight, so to speak. Think of steganography as the soft-spoken yet elegant sister of cryptography (which scrambles a message to prevent unauthorized people from reading it), steganography opts instead to hide the message in such a way that it is not obvious that there is anything there to see.

"Paradoxically one of the greatest advantages of mind maps is that they are seldom needed again. The very act of constructing a map is itself so effective in fixing ideas in memory that very often a whole map can recalled without going back to it at all. A mind map is so strongly visual and uses so many of the natural functions of memory that frequently it can be simply read off in the "mind's eye." - Peter Russell from http://www.cybernation.com/quotationcenter/quotesearch.php?keywords=map&type=0
