SPAM Advisory: Invite from Bryan Busch (bryanjbusch at gmail.com)

For those who aren't aware, Quechup is a spam engine disguised as a
social networking site. It will send invites to your contact list
without permission, which is how this invite was probably sent.

ADMIN: Invites from Social Networks

Today an invite went out to the IxDA Discussion list inviting people
to a social network on behalf of a subscriber.

I haven't spoken to this subscriber yet, but I am going to assume the
following. They said invite everyone in my Gmail contact list unaware
of the fact that their contact list consists of everyone they have
ever written an email to including discussion lists like this one.

Ok, yes, the person didn't want to do this, but they did and they have
to be responsible for it.

Examples for data-mining UI


I'm looking for examples or comments that would guide me in the right
direction to solve the following problem (I'm not an experienced UI

We are developing an application used to administer and browse data
around a data-mining system.

At the core of the system are the objects. Examples are Customer,
Product, Vendor, Department, etc. Each such object have different set of
attributes (name, address, price, etc).

The objects are then categorized along different "dimensions".
