Hobart Swan, external affairs manager for Mindjet, recently announced that he's leaving the company, effective February 16th, for a new position in Boise, ID - where he has been living for the past few years.
So what? Hobie was not only a very good PR guy, who worked tirelessly to build recognition for the company's MindManager software, he was also a passionate supporter of visual mapping. In addition, he was a very enthusiastic supporter of me and my online efforts (this blog, my mind mapping software e-books and InnovationTools.com) over the past 5 years. He'll be greatly missed by many in the world of mind mapping.
Best of luck to you in your new position, Hobie!
