Hey,
In the recent wave of Silverlight, Flex, AIR, JavaFX, and Curl, do you think that web designer are swimming in dangerous water?
Do you expect they will loose their jobs in a couple of years?

No,

You still need people with the artistic talent. HTML is not going to go away either.

The triumvirate of HTML/CSS/JavaScript isn't going anywhere.The incursions of these new technologies into the traditional space will remain relatively small.

Also, I would imagine these people with artistic skills are going to be instrumental in making these new technologies look good too.

Good point Jeanne. It's become very clear over the years that most websites designed by developers look like, well, websites designed by developers.

Microsoft also came out with a line of all new products for Slightlight and web designers. The tools are actually pretty nice looking.
