I think the ability to import automatically or semi-automatically data in TheBrain will be really a great innovation (it was discussed several time in the forum).
Starting from references (PubMed for the living science field) and may be arriving to ontologies where terms and concepts will be the THOUGHT and the assertions will be the LINKS. This will permit the fusion of an existing structured information with our own way of thinking (TheBrain).
Nevertheless, in my almost 10 years of Brain usage, I notice that when I insert the information myself and think about the links I want to establish, this information fix better in my mind and impose me a reflexion that I do not have with software like EndNote, Mendeley, etc.
Finally, I was also astonished yesterday not having access to the Brain and I strongly recommend to introduce the possibility to have ALWAYS the possibility to log in to the local data, but I am also well impressed by the reactivity of the team during the week-end!
