Let's talk about tools
Let's see, it started with this tweet from +Roger Parker

… Fascinating, intuitive #vizthink
card-based video @davegray
Is this not something one can do with existing tools though? Even things like Google apps, etc? I don't get it.
Dave Gray: What's your go-to tool for this Jason? I haven't found anything that works for me yet, hence this project
My go-to tool is not to replicate real world into digital. I use masses of mind maps for this kind of stuff.
It means I don't really believe in card sorts as such, which this basically is a tool for. Or post-its.
I also find that doing any of this kind of card sorting stuff in real world doesn't achieve much, so avoid it.
It seems that you're not criticizing the app but something much deeper. I hope you blog about it or something.
My personal experience has been very different.
I know your style of working quite well. I don't believe in underpinning technique for sure. Tool lacks a proper USP
The demo certainly sells it quite nicely, but the core question for me is 'what then' when you are done?
The last thing I need in my life is to add another tool to my toolset. I'm trying to do everything with less tools.
Tried to keep it to the basic facts. There's more on Twitter for those who are interested. But I lost the thread and am hoping to continue it here.
Moving a conversation from Twitter. I'll fill in details but meanwhile let's start in the middle.
