Like so many people, I find using whiteboards a really good way to exchange and communicate ideas. It's interesting that even with all the supporting software and collaboration technologies available today, that so often we end up using the whiteboard in design session and meetings.

But not all "whiteboard scribes" or "whiteboarders" are equal.

In a recent webcast on WS-Trust I really like the Vittorio uses notation to illustrate some quite complex concepts such as message signing, encryption and exchange of tokens. Nice white boarding technique!

Now I never thought I was that bad at drawing up basic concepts on a whiteboard, but I could use all the help I can get.

I think I need one of these .... 

I know what I'm going to ask Santa for this year.
