To All:

If we follow the logical course, most "Technical Writers" are
Subject Matter Experts (SME's) in the area of documentation.

I am including all of us who are working in the 'documentation field'
as Technical Documentation Specialists. This includes writers, editors,
page layout specialists, indexers, document designers, et al.
I know that we all have own areas of concentration/specialization,
but our 'clients' want us to 'know everything about documents!! (emphasis

Especially if there is no one else they can 'pick on'.

My thoughts are that documentation SME's are needed just like
other SME's, etc. Perhaps this is an opportunity for a few of
you to begin a program to teach exactly what is necessary to
step in to a TW position.
Just thought I'd add my .02 :)
