How long should you run each instance in an introductory Flash piece

What¹s the recommended time to run a Flash movie introducing a site, its
content and available tools to a new user on arrival.

Example, see http://www.smilebooks.com/

I think this one runs for 8-9 seconds end to end.

Thanks!

Why should designers make more?

Something I feel VERY strongly about is changing the perceived value of
designers/design
in many companies, and consequently the compensation designers receive
relative to engineers, etc.
I plan to write several articles about this and hopefully have some
impact...

First entry - future ones will have more meat...

Password requirements are not user friendly

Many of you might have tried creating an account online in order to
participate in an online forum or in order to apply for a job in a major
corporation.

Many times a password needs to consist of the following-
A capital letter
A digit or sometimes 2 digits
Minimum 8 Characters
The password must not include ANY of the letters or digits already
contained in your user name.

Why make it hard for a user to sign up?? Why cant a username 'ABS_4u' have
the following password 'Malemodel_14' ??

better but seems more ugly interaction

http://www.switched.com/2008/10/16/employees-can-now-clock-in-with-their-cell-phones/

"The methods for tracking employees have evolved as companies attempt
to reign in spending and increase productivity. 'The Man' never
sleeps, and pretty soon, the opportunity for the working man to
exercise his right to take unnecessary coffee breaks and congregate at
the watercooler will be gone forever."

It only makes the working enviroment less attractive than without it,
from personal view.
