Bike locks?

I just bought a $500 Giant Hybrid bike to commute to work. There's a secure area on my building to store bikes during the day. What kind of bike lock should I get? What bike lock do you have and why?

Kryptonite. Worth every penny. I also have a set of Pinhead locks for the wheels, seat post, and saddle. Amazon tends to have good deals on locks during the winter, but prices are higher now that the the good weather is back.

This is a good article on locking technique: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/lock-strategy.html

I got a 12mm Kryptonite. Is that a decent size?
