I just thought L&L should be made aware that Scapple now has some competitors stalking what it does.
One is IHMC CmapTools
And the other is Mindomo.com's "Concept Maps"
I'd be interested to hear what anyone here makes of each of them.

A tool doesn't have to change or be "developed" to be useful. My 20 year old hammer is as good as the new one I recently bought.

Successful ideas are usually based on some fundamental principle which makes it different than other apparently similar ideas. Sometimes someone will see a really good idea and come up with an idea to make it even better, and there is no way to prevent that, even with patents.

Actually, no - only if your environment changes and no longer affords you an equable habitat.
As you can tell from the responses you (and other threads with the same idea) are getting: Scapple is flourishing because it fits its niche.

Wait - now I get it. Scapple is a religion!
And there's no successful convincing someone that their religion in incorrect or needs a little fine tuning... let alone an entire upgrade.
Scapple akbar! Scapple akbar! Scapple is perfect! Death to non-believing infidels!**
