Visually boring wire frames and charts

I am looking for inspiration to help me break out of my rut of generating wire frames and charts that are functional, but visually boring. Some individuals just have the knack to see and present data that doesn't put you to sleep. Datavisualization Yodas' if you will. Can you recommend some web sites, books or whatever that show examples of information relationships depicted in a visually appealing way. I have completely enjoyed the pattern libraries and I am hoping for the same when it comes to data.

Looking for a row-entry design pattern

There's a pattern that I've seen a couple places - MS Access being the
one that comes immediately to mind - where a person is doing
row-oriented data entry and filling in one row then hitting return
causes a new empty row to be created automatically so the person can
continue data entry without having to go elsewhere for a special
"create new row below this one" command. Does anyone have other
examples of this pattern handy or better yet a description/writeup of
the pattern?

There's still time to register for the PhizzPop Design Challenge and see your IxDA Peers.

Hey folks,

We've still got space at our design challenge events in NYC, Chicago, LA, Austin and Boston. NYC is filling up quickly and you'll be able to meet one of IxDA's very own founders David Malouf who will be judging! I weep for the contestants and wish them good luck! :)

Other events will have interesting judges as well, including Carlos Segura in Chicago, Luke W in Austin, and Lou Carbone in LA.

The events are free and the cocktails are on Microsoft.

UX manager resources

Hi, all,

Does anyone know of mentorship/discussion group resources specifically for UX group managers? The U-PODS web site seems to be down--anyone know if that group still exists, and if so, how to get in touch?

I manage two other designers, and have just had a significant expansion of responsibilities due to my company being acquired.

How did you first get into interaction design?

I recently wrote a post about how I became an application designer. Originally I worked as sound designer/ editor for games in Los Angeles, and had a need for tool to help my colleagues and I on job, that I managed to design and develop.

Savannah Airport

I was just informed that my flight out after the conference has been
moved back to 5:40. Given that the conference is scheduled to end at
4:30, I'm guessing I'm going to have to duck out early. Is there
anyone familiar with the area that could give me an idea of how much
time I should allow myself? I want to miss as little as possible!

roles within a start up

This is just one person's perspective... specific to the narrow niche of
tech start ups, but the perception held is still valid (we tend towards deep
instances over aggregates don't we?). As an interaction designer, user
experience designer, information architect or just a designer... where do
you see your place in this picture?
