comment Is there data on the effectiveness on mind-mapping?
I would second @DavidAntaramian: Tony Buzan's book The Mind Map Book is a good resource for studies and so on, though it might be considered biased.

comment Techniques for mind dump (including mind sweeps/trigger lists)
Speaking in GTD terms, it sounds like you are not referring to universal capture (writing everything down immediately on the spot when you think of it) but rather the weekly review (or "emptying of the mind").

comment In GTD how do I track projects with subprojects?
I use goals for things like "Learn French" or "Write book" - that is, multi-year goals. There are sub-tasks available, but that's a Toodledo Pro feature.

comment Does listening to music help or hurt productivity?
There are programs to generate white or pink noise for the Mac (Noisy or White Noise) and Linux (whitenoise) and Windows (White Noise Sleep System). There's even a web-based application called SimplyNoise.
