So I'm starting to build my team and raise capital. More on that later.
I've had a technical setback with Focus, and decided to take a break from that and whip out something else I've wanted to build for a long time. It should have taken a week, but I, being me, had to try a wide variety of methods and land on the best one.
I think I've nailed it, finally. I'm just wrapping it up over the next few days--literally cleaning up some of the code, fixing a few known issues, adding accounts, save, undo, etc.
Buckets is a simple way to do a braindump and organize that which you've dumped(there's got to be better semantics than that).
It is not a mindmap. Mindmaps are full of stuff--too much stuff, too much information, too many lines. It's not a task manager; Focus will have one, both products will integrate with online task managers and Outlook.
It's just a very simple, quick, fluid way to dump and collect your thoughts or tasks. Things. Whatever. That's the part I'm opening up to a private beta in a few days, anyway.
It goes a lot deeper, without complexity--it's a platform with APIs, and hopefully you'll dig it. Sign up here:

Investment--so yes, I'm building a team here in Lancaster. If you are a C++ dev lead, an architect, a Flex developer, or Cocoa dev please drop me a line.
If you're an investor looking to invest in a high-growth, disruptive company, please contact me and we'll talk about how we're going to make you a hero.
