Dashboard for non-trending data?

I've been tasked with designing an interface for an application that reports on SQL and Sharepoint data. I'd like the default home page of the application to present some sort of summary information, and I thought a dashboard would not only jazz things up a bit (I've also been asked to try to make reporting 'sexy' - not an easy feat!), but also provide an entry point for newer users.

However, dashboards tend to lend themselves to trend-type data, or reports that generate simple numerical results such as 'number of databases: 24'.

Is beauty too deep?

In my readings about aesthetics (thanx everyone for the great suggestions),
I noticed a concentration on "beauty". Now I know from the formal side of
the aesthetics community aesthetics is almost the philosophy of beauty. A
noble academic goal indeed. But this line of reasoning feels a bit too
academic and hard to make tangible into my day to day.

I wonder if "beauty" is not really the right noun to be thinking about and I
wonder what word would best replace it with something as all encompassing,
but less intangible.

Resource/PM Tool Like Basecamp?

Hi All,

I am trying to manage design resources/assets and would very much like to use Basecamp.  However, due to security reasons, it's not an option for my group.  Does anyone know if there is open source software like Basecamp that can do the same or similar things for a team of 15 or so? I need the project based approach, as well, some type of PM functionality.

Thanks in advance!

Physical Interaction Design

I was interested in Lisa deBettencourt's comments about their (Bose's)
design's being rendered in steel plastic etc.
Here's a thought: how about trying to design a generic physical "front end"
that can be dynamically updated. Such a system would enable you to make
changes as and if needed, plus enable your users to customize (and
personalize) their physical interfaces if they like. This issue is obviously
fraught with many problems, but can also be an interesting, maybe even an
exciting innovation for the physical interface world.
