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.

The Art of CRIMPing

What is CRIMP ? A definition by Stephen Zeoli: CRIMP stands for a make-believe malady called compulsive-reactive information management purchasing. Symptoms include: – never being satisfied with your current system of information management – continuously being on the look-out for something newer and better – purchasing every new PIM program you learn about – and […]

Springpad: Re-imagining the personal organizer for the social and mobile world.

Springpad is a rather new online NoteBook service that has some features from Evernote and some from other ways to organize your ideas, plans and whatever you stumble upon during A Day in the Web. And also in Everyday Life – “done better” as they say it. I found it yesterday and of course, signed […]

More iNotebooks

In my last post I wrote about MyScript Notes Mobile, an app for the iPad. That was before I discovered the Moleskine app,  which is a virtual rendering of the original Moleskine Notebooks that I always used before I switched to LiveScribe. THE CLASSIC FUTURE OF DIGITAL JOURNALS The look and feel is classic Moleskine. […]

Connotea is closing

Connotea, nature.com’s social bookmarking site, is closing on March 12th, 2013. Bad News? I don’t think so, because there are a lot of bookmarking tools, and the world of the internet is changing rapidly. So: in the beginning you simply bookmarked inside your browser. AFAIK you can still do that with most browsers, but who […]

Why are online articles so expensive?

He describes the study by Edward Belbruno, Amaya Moro-Martin, Renu Malhotra, Dmitry Savransky: “Chaotic exchange of solid material between planetary systems: implications for lithopanspermia” I’m not sure about the soundness of the conclusion (the possibility of lithopanspermia, a kind of […]

Also, they promise there are even more ways to create your MindMaps, but I wasn’t able to try it because I’ll have to wait until Drive is availabe to me – that is how it always […]

Filk Music

I’m currently e-reading Larry Niven’s (ed al) “Fallen Angels“. I like the story, but the book is about fandom, which is a new world to me.  So, I did some googling, which gave me 33,700,000 results, of course a lot from Wikipedia, all – at least the first three 🙂 – very interesting. Eventually I […]

  • 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”
