While using PersonalBrain, we add and update Thoughts manually. If we have dynamic Thoughts, these tasks may be done automatically. Here I mean Thoughts with code binded: a function in an external dll or exe executed periodically.
When the corresponding code is executed, result is returned as a predefined xml file, then content in the file added to the Thought as its children. Before adding the new Thoughts, a dialogue can show up for overwrite or keep existing Thoughts.

Bravo!!!! It’s great concept … I would go even one step further. TheBrain should have option to dynamically:
- Create new thought,
- Change existing thought content (entire or partially),
- Create jones childe, parent and jump,
- Change jones childe, parent and jump,
- Change link thickness, label content of the link, link colour and One-way status,
By the scheduled Brain XML import / export option it should be achieved very easily.
Looking forward to see TheBrain feedback.

I suggested the capability of 'Pluggable Thought Types' at : http://thebrain.uservoice.com/pages/4597-personalbrain/suggestions/309012-pluggable-thought-types
Thoughts could be automatically created when a Thought with "User Plugged In" Thought type is created. May be we could combine our vote for the 'Pluggable Thought Types' creations.
