The Image Drawing Dilemma

Good posts demand good illustration. That is true for all topics but especially true for technical content (I know I promised more non-technical content, I have quite a bit of it, but it needs to be organized and reviewed).

I have been evaluating the following options for illustrating

  1. Hand drawn (I have a scanner)
  2. Using a tool like VISIO (openoffice has a decent tool too)
  3. Using my favourite MetaPost/LaTeX/pdfLaTeX/MetaFun
  4. Using PIC
  5. Using Graphviz

In this post, lets look at hand drawn images. Here are two hand drawn and scanned images - what do you make of them?
