I am not interested in pictures or diagrams, though I don't mind them. I am not interested in something simple either. Wikis are not a bad example of what I have in mind, but I'm still searching.

Privacy implies no cloud account needed.

What information organizing software options are there if I demand privacy and freedom... "as in free software"? Use either application names or application class names.

  • The "free/dom as in free/dom" pun was intentional; as in intended.

  • I understand that you probably don't know the answer, which is why you are asking, but "information organizing software options" is a bit vague. Mind-maps are a possibility, but there are more structured (tree-like) options, and project planning is something else entirely. Can you tell us what kind of information you have? And, do you require features like search/sort/links between info items, etc? The more detail that you can give us, the better we can help you

Don’t know if the question is valid or not but here goes my 5cents:

Freeplane (mind mapping tool) does not require any user info, and can work offline. It has tons of features (that I don’t use that much).

Disclaimer: I use freeplane occasionally but I’m not affiliated with it anyhow.
