Well, we do have all that and more, but there are still challenges to easily create dynamic, interactive, web-friendly animation. For the most part the challenge is simply finding the right tool for the right job (such as CSS3 for UI animation), but you may also need a crystal ball to NOT use what's about to go away forever (such as Adobe Edge or and the famo.us animation engine).
I'll offer an overview of what I know, but hope to have this be more of a discussion, an open share: What works for you; what you need; can animators animate with code instead of timelines; and more.
Good overview on Web Animation Past, Present, and Future.
Ted is a Creative Technology Director, Hybrid Designer/Developer, or whatever the groovy creative/technology title-of-the-week is.
His experience is rooted in web/app development and motion graphics in advertising/marketing industries. This includes: leading a team of enterprise software developers; teaching college students; juggling technology and creativity at/for some companies you've heard of, like The New York Times, Vogue, Macy's, and DDB.
People also seem to enjoy hearing that he has a dual degree in mechanical/aerospace engineer, as well as in music, and he also worked as an engineer at Boeing, and as a TV critic, that his site has samples of stuff he did in the past, and he should probably update it soon.
