The new zumida user interface revealed!

September 28, 2016

Some time ago I started working on a new version of zumida, a software for knowledge management, communication, and presentation. Today, I want to share two screenshots with you providing a peek on the new zumida user interface.

The new zumida user interface allows one to explore existing knowledge nodes and their connections (right side of the following screenshot). The visualization also includes a plus button for creating and connecting new knowledge nodes or for connecting existing knowledge nodes. Furthermore, delete buttons are provided for deleting connections bewtween knowledge nodes. Finally, the information contained in knowledge nodes can be edited directly (left side of the same screenshot).

When clicking the plus button, a text field appears for entering the name of the knowledge node, which should be connected (right side of the following screenshot). While typing the name of the knowledge node, zumida searches for and displays existing knowledge nodes matching the text input. Then, the user can press enter to create a new knowledge node and connect it to the original knowledge node. Alternatively, the user can click an existing knowledge node for connecting it to the original knowledge node.

I hope you like both the graphical style of the user interface and the behavior of the user interface. If you are keen to provide feedback, do not hestitate to contact me via email (i.e. or any other communication channel. zumida still is in development and I am open to suggestions regarding its functionality and appearance. If you like, you also can become a test user and registering at

3D Cubic Interpolation Video

Cubic interpolation is a popular technique in many branches of computer science. For example, it is used when having a time series of numbers and estimating the intermediate points, for which no dedicated number sample is available. In such situations the idea is to consider the series as a time-continuous function, estimating the function's parameters, and calculating the function value for the desired time point. Hereby, we talk about cubic interpolation if this estimation function uses the time parameter up to the power of three. The effect of this technique is visualized in my newest YouTube video.

View onto the Energy System

Lately I got interested in the domain of energy supply systems for human society. It is currently one of the hottest topics all in politics, science, research & development, and economics respectively business. My particular interest is in developing software to support all current activities around energy systems from conception to verification to deployment to maintainance. In this first article I illustrate my current (limited) understanding of the energy ecosystem.

Animated Article Tiles

In my previous posts Blog Calender Interface and Blog Timeline Widget I demonstrated how to use the time information to build navigation controls for blogs. In this article again I deal with blog navigation, however this time I exploit the images contained in the blog articles for building a tiled navigation interface.
