    I think a number of web use and design principles have changed since 1996.

    One of them is how we disseminate and digest information. I feel content is a lot more dynamic these days compared to the 90s when a lot of sites were typically very static and we all got sick of “Merry Christmas” scrolling marques well into October…

    Also take a look at Twitter for example, short sharp messages, updated regularly which are also displayed on a lot of websites via plug-ins, almost the same affect as a tickertape really.

    I agree tickertapes shouldn’t be used as a fad item, or be gaudy, or fast paced, but I do believe that appropriatly set up for appropriate use such as IT Announcments, that they can have a place on an intranet.
