  • Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

  • Fast, Beautiful, and Truly Compelling Plans

    If there is anything in your life, business, or organization that needs improvement? Flying Logic is a highly visual, easy to use software application that does for reasoning what spreadsheets do for numbers. Just as you would not do detailed financial projections in your head, you need Flying Logic for all nontrivial planning and reasoning endeavors.

    The Flying Logic Advantage

    Project management software won’t help you when you have no idea what part of a complex system needs improvement, or what that improvement might look like, or how to cause that improvement. Answering these questions is a critical and often-overlooked part of the planning process, and this is where Flying Logic shines. Flying Logic diagrams are not static images— they are working models of your reasoning that you test as you build and that stay „live“ as you share your reasoning with others.

    Make Your Thinking Fly

    Our unique, patented interface allows you to focus on what your diagram means, instead of how to lay it out. Flying Logic takes care of all the layout and formatting details: you spend your time thinking about your plan!

    The Many Uses of Flying Logic

    Flying Logic provides great support for a wide range of activities that demand clear and complete thinking:

    * Strategic planning
    * Competitive analysis
    * Course of Action Analysis (COA)
    * Process improvement (Six Sigma, Lean, Constraints Management)
    * Project management
    * Writing
    * Public speaking
    * Studying and teaching critical thinking
