SdiDesk (ThoughtStorms)

Update 2013 : Some of the ideas from SdiDesk have migrated into OWL OutlinerWithWikiLinking

Update: March 2012

I am no longer thinking of developing a new SdiDesk. Instead I've decided to re-orient all my wiki-tool development projects around the ProjectThoughtStorms.

My plan is to have a script that lets you import SdiDesk files into SFW (half written) longer term ... VisualStructureEditor support in the new ThoughtStorms wiki software.

Sep 2008, I've had someone convert to VB.NET ... source-code of work-in-progress currently at

About SdiDesk

Should be of interest to all you PersonalKnowledgeManagement / PersonalWiki fans.

I'm very soft launching the prototype of a program I've been working on for the last few months. It's basically a desktop application which acts very like this wiki. You can use it for quick note-taking, HyperText authoring.

It has a couple of cool features that this wiki has :

And a couple of things it doesn't

But note, it's very much a prototype / draft / UnfinishedProject which I'm shipping to get feedback. And it's written in VB so it's Windows only. It might not even work on your configuration, but I don't have a lot of machines to try it on. It works on the Windows 98 machines I have available, but I don't know where else. All bug reports gratefully received.

Oh, and it's GPLed, so if you have a copy of VB, you can get going on the source code.

If interested go over to for for more details.

Maybe it should spit out GraphML
