I've been looking at agency websites for the past couple hours on theFWA.com
and my eyes are bleeding. It's one bizarre Flash disaster after another.

Does anyone have a favorite site (or resource for looking at some) that is
both engaging & cool AND usable?

I'm on your page, Jayson. There are plenty of situations where Flash
is really helpful (or your clients beg for it), but for the most part
it's over the top, unnecessary and very hard on the user experience.

I attended the Future of Web Design in NYC last month and saw dozens
of great ideas and examples of people pushing the envelope with css
and javascript.

They have a good website with really great polish and motion. It
feels like flash but I think it is all javascript. If you notice when
you click on a link it doesn't reload the entire page. Wish I knew
how to do that. They don't do their own programming, so who knows
what they used.

You can do so much with javascript libraries like jQuery. You get the
robust websites that php and ruby provide and the sweet feel of flash.

That's a good choice. They're the agency that did TED.com - they have a
superb user experience director over there, love those guys.
