Robert Nimchuck asked:
My question to everyone is this: are the principles of "information mapping"
important in what we do (as writers) or has it been effectively marketed to
make us think we need it?

My own opinion is that "information mapping" is simply a copyrighted
buzzword that is based on a writing methodology that writers have used all

What do you think?

And I reply that there was an extensive and occasionally emotional
discussion of Info Mapping on the list fairly recently (within the past few
months, at least), which covered this in painful detail. Several people,
including me, wrote fairly long responses.

I think you'll find your concerns well addressed in the TECHWR-L archives.
Happy digging! It should turn up the info (mapped and unmapped) that you're
looking for.
