    One more (and probably the most basic) point on the below --

    The QuestMap-style interface shows relationships. It is all about a highly
    manipulatable and leverageable visualization of how concepts relate to each
    other. There are plenty of other tools that have "better" visualizations of
    relationships (e.g. Inxight, the Brain, etc. etc) but they are not highly
    manipulatable as I'd define that. There are also plenty of tools that are
    highly manipulatable but they don't show and leverage relationships (in
    multiple ways, in multiple contexts, etc.) nearly as well.

    Using this kind of interface in meetings is the best GUI I've found for
    enabling interaction that is expressly concerned with collaborative
    understanding/construction/reconstruction of the relationships between

    with IBIS and other tools) as to whether IBIS is really the present best
    formalism for enabling this sort of interaction. Discuss."

    Well, "best" is a big word :-)
