Woodstock Festival 1969

So a few months ago I couldn’t sleep and I came across a rough outline of the Woodstock festival lineup. It didn’t seem right to me so I figured I would make my own. (Another mind mapping experience success). This entire post was written in a mind map and then converted to markdown. I didn’t have to do anything but hit a button and paste it into my blogging software (Blogo) once the map was finished. This particular map was created with iThoughts for iOS. Highlighted song titles are links to the iTunes store.

◦ “My Beloved Brothers and Sisters: I am overwhelmed with joy to see the entire youth of America gathered here in the name of the fine art of music. In fact, through the music, we can work wonders. Music is a celestial sound and it is the sound that controls the whole universe, not atomic vibrations. Sound energy, sound power, is much, much greater than any other power in this world. And, one thing I would very much wish you all to remember is that with sound, we can make—and at the same time, break. Even in the war-field, to make the tender heart an animal, sound is used. Without that war band, that terrific sound, man will not become animal to kill his own brethren. So, that proves that you can break with sound, and if we care, we can make also.”
