ADMIN: Going on Vacation ????? ( was RE: Anthony Quinn is on leave )

Let me take this moment during the winter solstice holiday season to remind
people that it is very inappropriate to have your out-of-office setting set
on, and still have your subscriptions for email lists set to receive.

Most lists have a function that allow you to suspend delivery. For sure,
ours does have such a setting and it is called mail delivery. If you go to
http://discuss.ixdg.org/ you can see our guidelines and instructions
regarding this particular setting.

So you want to be an IxD - education

I would contend, that 2 year junior colleges typically serve well as craft based trade schools for the design profession and can produce quality graphic artists and production (print or web) people.

Undergraduate programs should be focused on design fundamentals. Many undergrads leave a four year program woefully under educated in design principles, design theory and design history.

Graduate school, is then where a designer picks a specific discipline... whether it be graphics, industrial, interiors, interactive, architecture, design management, etc.

Interaction08 Selling Out Soon and Other News

Just an update on Interaction08.

We had a tremendous response to our early bird registration and have
sold nearly 3/4 of the registrations for Interaction08. There are only
a limited number of available registrations left. We're reserving a
dozen or so for students and the remaining 50 for professionals. We
expect these to be sold quickly and the conference to sell out by mid-
January *at the latest*.

NULL values in charts/visualizations

Anyone know of standard conventions for displaying NULL values in visualizations like scatter plots? I am working to define this behavior for Scatter (bubble), Heat Grids and Geo Mapping visualizations but I cannot find any resources to help identify best practices. I was thinking that it would be good to indicate NULL because it may be an issue with getting data rather than no data value or if the values was actually zero. Example -  a Null value for the size by or color by value does not get returned for a point on a scatter chart.
