I talked this morning with Nicco about producing diagrams of MyProxyAdvisor’s functionality (the flow of the user experience, navigation, etc). He said they develop their charts on a Mac program that ships with their operating system, and asked if I had Visio for Windows, which he understood was an alternative. Of course I don’t, but I was able to track down Dia, which is an open-source program designed as an alternative to Visio and available for Windows. I installed this and so far so good. In my 5 minutes of playing around with it I did not produce anything I couldn’t have done with OpenOffice draw or even Impress (their Powerpoint alternative) but probably when I get back to this I will find out more about its advantages.
