Are rotating banners still in trend?

Hello all, 

We are looking to revamp our website and make it more structured and informative, yet visually appealing to our guests. One suggestion that came up was the use of 'rotating banner' on our home page with some key information and links to our internal web pages.

We thus wanted to get an idea from the design community whether rotating banners are still in trend to use on the homepae of a website, as they were riding high couple of years back.

And, do they still have the same appeal to and draw from viewers?

Youtube new interface

Hello there,

Anyone noticed the redesign on Youtube's player page? I would like to ask what your views are on that.

With plenty of mouse-over events, fade in-outs, reorganized information and the end of internal scroll bar for related content, I personally think it's a good and strategic step towards HTML 5 capabilities that will soon be official and support video plus richer design patterns. But that's just a quick superficial analysis.

Corporate culture and IxD

A couple of articles to illustrate:

Has anyone here had the same or similar experiences as Mr X?

Briefly, Dustin Curtis came up with a redesign of the American
Airlines website because of his perception of a poor customer
experience. A UX Designer from AA replied discussing the difficulties
of getting good work out of the door because of corporate culture.

How to transition seamlessly to a new design from an old one?

This is my first post, since I have been an avid reader of ALL the
advices and comments from intellectual people over here. But a small
question popped in my mind when I came across a website that was
redesigned and I was completely lost. Pardon me if this query has
been answered before.

It's an employee intranet portal which had been operational for
around a decade. The UI wasn't changed one bit in all this time.
Later the organization decided it was time to move on and did the
best they could with the UI design.
