IxDA SF: In The Moment: UX research about life instead of just interfaces - Tomorrow Night!

In The Moment: UX research about life instead of just interfaces
http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/312297/

IxDA SF returns with its third event in our design tools series. This
month we present Nate Bolt, CEO of Bolt | Peters, as he presents UX
research about life.

Not all UX research is about the interface. It’s about the habits,
moods, location, and motivations of the people using your interface.
Unfortunately, that junk is unpredictable and difficult to measure,
but can make or break the accuracy of your research.

Lore Sjöberg of Alt Text proposes a few interesting (and only slightly
insane) improvements for the world's most common desk ornaments.

Consumer vs. Corporate products

It is well known that there is often more money in
selling tech products to corporates than to individual
consumers.

It is also often true that the buyers at corporations
are not the users. They are usually looking to buy a
product that satisfies a check-list of requirements.
The usable (but poorly designed) product that
satisfies this list will be given more or less equal
weight to a well-designed product. The poorly
designed product will win a deal, if marketed well
enough.

One may argue that productivity costs will make users
revolt. Not really.

closed captioning

Thanks for all the really great threads. They help more than you know!

My question:

I am working on a long-term project that involves creating a series of
SCORM (shareable content object reference model) and 508 compliant
online training pieces for a government customer. Our latest project is
an animated software demo with zooms, captions, cursor recording, etc.
The movie is a SWF played in an HTML shell.

I recently pressed to add a expandable/collapsible closed-captioning
option. I did a little leg-work to find out the feasibility of this
feature.

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.
