For developing ideas quickly, sketching is not only efficient, but for me provides a kind of iterative feedback not possible with the computer. I once heard that one's inability to draw perfectly actually leads to productive variations as an idea develops -- your mistakes suggest new directions. This is not possible on a computer where everything looks "perfect."
