Tools for animating the user experience

At work this week my boss mentioned that he thinks my designs would be
better communicated if I created short animations, rather than
exclusively draw storyboards as I do now. I need a tool that allows
me to take an idea and present it in a slideshow within a matter of
minutes or hours. I'm very comfortable with Illustrator, so
preferably the animation tool would have a similar interface and
allow wacom input.

Does anyone have a preferred tool for this kind of thing? Flash?
Silverlight? Something else?

Design/UX goals in your company

As it grows, the company I work for is becoming more metric-driven.
Ultimately, I support the idea of having goals and metrics that help
us understand whether we're doing good work, the right work, etc.

I don't expect goals & metrics to ever tell the whole story; the
world is squishy and numbers are unlikely to paint a completely
honest picture. I do think, however, that they'll help us start
conversations and give us something to shoot towards.

I'm curious: what type of goals and metrics exist in your company
that are related to good user experience and good design?

From time to time I find myself struggling with writing very short
describing text labels and titles for our web application's UI.

Writing text labels and titles for the UI is much like writing road
signs, people go by them in very high speeds and you have a limited
amount of space.

I wanted to ask, how many of you work in companies who hire full time
copywriters? Part time?

Do you have a special UI copywriter adviser outsourced?

Or do you manage by yourselves and just advise anyone around you?

Why haven't video calls taken off

It was supposed to be the next big thing but it fizzled out like MMS

An important thing to note is you would have to use the speakerphone
to do video calls (unless you're always on BT headset or handsfree,
which is not true for an overwhelming majority of people) and this
compromises privacy in a big way…no one wants people nearby snooping
in on their conversations.

Would love to hear your thoughts on why it hasn't taken off yet?

I will make a post about the responses I receive and will publish them
in a few weeks for all to see (names are anonymous)
