Request for discussion (1)

Proposed name: comp.graphics.dx, following the precedent set by 
	comp.graphics.avs and comp.graphics.explorer
	
Charter: A forum for the discussion of issues related to the IBM
	Visualization Data Explorer software product (commonly known as DX).  

Moderation status: unmoderated

Background and Rationale: Data Explorer is an integrated visualization 
	environment that uses a visual programming interface.  It allows 
	the user to connect functional modules to form new visualization 
	processes.  This group will provide a forum for discussion of 
	techniques, module development, and experiences using Data Explorer 
	on various platforms (currently IBM, SGI, Sun, and HP workstations).  

Discussion: Comments on this proposal should be posted to news.groups, or 
	may be e-mailed to [email protected] in the event posting is not 
	possible.  If the discussion proves positive, voting will be solicited 
	after one month from the posting date of this request.

Proposer: Mark Westergaard ([email protected]), University of Arizona

	successful discussion resulted in changing the proposed name to
