When you go to the front page you can choose shocked or unshocked versions.
The opening page of the shocked presentation shows a timeline created in

As John C notes, you can right-click (PC) or control-click (Mac) to show a
zooming menu for Flash. In this case, the Shockwave logo and the
interactivity reveal this piece as being done in Director.

(For those who haven't seen it, the FrogDesign timeline lets you grab and
toss a timeline around. That type of advanced interactivity is a hallmark
of what people do with Director.)

Now, what I'm *really* looking forward to is the visual sensibility of
people on this list combined with the high-interactivity of Lingo. The
default Shockwave download now includes the Flash Asset Xtra for Director,
which means that Flash designs can be embedded in web-delivered Director
movies, and can intercommunicate with Lingo (think FSCommand on
growth-hormones). This is a _very_ exciting area, but it will take awhile
for all of us to digest. I'm looking forward to what people create with
these new combinations.
