KUMU: A toolset designed to dismantle complexity.

Kumu – Hawaiian for “teacher”, or “source of wisdom” – is a web-based relationship modeling environment for developing network and systems thinking diagrams.

In the video you can see the ability to import data from Excel. The graphics look good, but the sample projects I’ve seen focus on customer relationship management. The manifesto offers a lot of philosophy about how to save (or at least change) the world,

We are Kumu — a small startup and an ambitious community changing the world one connection at a time.

so I doubt if it will be useful for my personal Shih-project.
However, as usual when I learn about a new information management system, I already signed up. 🙂

  • Kuehleborn’s Unfathomable Thoughts

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge - various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories - to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge - this was shih. - David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It's about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things. Definitely the only way to travel. - Martin Delaney – “Laptop Music”
