The coolest thing for collaboration between developers and designers  
will be Thermo, but that won't be available til next year. It allows  
interfaces to be created in Photoshop, then converted automatically  
into Flex apps. The demo is amazing. It shows stuff like an image of  
a scrollbar being automatically converted into a working scrollbar,  
and the placeholder images being turned into real dummy data sources.
