Emulation
This app works with: Mini vMac

Released in June 1984, ThinkTank 128 was the first rudimentary "idea processor" that would later evolve into MORE 1.0 (MORE would be released circa 1987 and was an essential tool back in its day).

thinktank_128.zip is ThinkTank 128 v1.000. The provided disk image is bootable, and the application and original data files have been tested to run in Mini vMac. The enclosing folder of "Tank.img" has a high resolution diskette icon.

An enhanced version for the Fat Mac, ThinkTank 512, followed in December 1984. It added word processing and graphics capabilities.

ThinkTank512_v1101_dsk.zip is ThinkTank 512 v1.101.

I actually used this software on a real Mac 128 we have at home. I think i still have the disks and manual somewhere and would be happy to scan it for this great site.

Oh OK thanks,
I have a very cool Outline program that runs on my Palm and PC
it´s called PROGECT (on the Palm) but the PC name is PDesk,
despite the name difference is exactly the same program by the same author,
I don´t know if there is a Mac version

this is the description I found here

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdesk/

"PDesk is a desktop companion for Progect (http://sf.net/projects/progect), written in Python/wxPython, running under linux and windows, maybe even MacOS. It is a simple project management program, that can sync with a palm under windows."

anyway this program is really good, if you have a Palm, you probably already know it.

It's for outlining and brainstorming and such. If you've got a paper to write, for example, and you don't know where to start, you start writing down things you think will be important and arranging them in an outline. Word processors aren't always the best at this, especially back in the '80s, so they made this "idea processor." I'm sure there are a lot of corporate uses for something like this.

Thanks for uploading, by the way!
