I'm looking to create a dynamic graphical relationship infomap where different thought/idea "bubbles" connect to others via color or lines. Any software reccos?

Are you thinking of mindmaps? I use (free) Freemind and (pay) Mindjet Mindmanager. See also, List of mind mapping software for other options.

I have to use Concept Map Tools for some of my classes. This sounds like it may be close to what you want, assuming you're okay with all edges needing labels.

Depending on how dynamic, you may want Graphviz.

Seconding Freemind, it's pretty good.

nthing Freemind for interactively building mind maps, and Graphviz if you need to do it programmatically (e.g. from Excel Data, Textfiles, anything).

Try Xmind -- it is newly free (now open source) and very flexible.
