How complete should wireframes and site maps be?

What do you do when-

You don't have time or budget to do a wireframe for every page listed
on the site map?

You're handed someone else's sitemap and wireframes only to find
there are things on the existing site that aren't accounted for in
the new layout?

Display of values as continuous gradient...

Anyone have a good algorithm (or aware of reasonable conceptual
heuristic) for displaying continuous data as a "gradient?"

I have a set of data points along a continuum which cluster modally.
Displaying the modes as hot spots on a continuum has been proposed as a
display that would resonate with our users (like blue to red for rare to

Pointers to Tufte-esque senstive discussions of the algorithms that
would support such a display would be appreciated.

Dock adventures

Hi Jim...

I think mostly because I'm impatient!!! =)

The genie zooming thing gives me a headache so I have it static on the right

Must we be Leonardo de Vinci?

"That interplay and innovation comes out best when one person is able to
work through it all. Not a team. Teams are needed due to project deadlines,
scope, etc. Teams are the norm, true, but the ideal is still one person. I
very rarely see teams innovate. I often see single designers innovate." --

I love ya man, but this point I REALLY have to disagree with. My experience
here at Motorola Enterprise Mobility is that innovation is best done in
