I've been using Visio because that's the available product that I have at my company, but I am nowhere near the proficiency that I want to be. I find myself spending way too much time with boxes, and dragging and dropping, etc.

I'm pretty excited about an upcoming workshop for storyboarding & comics that I'm taking with Scott McCloud -- hosted by NY IxDA and SVA on May 1-2, and I'll blog about what I learned there.

12 Really Useful Usability Books

A list of 12 Really Useful Usability Books Worth Reading, and Re-Reading
