In December 1999, I asked subscribers to a number of technical writing
mailing lists to take part in a survey of writers at small and startup
Over seventy writers from a number of countries including the USA, the UK,
the Netherlands, and Israel replied to the survey, and I have now published
my preliminary results at http://dfarbey.tripod.com/writing.html
This survey is part of my research for a presentation at the forthcoming
FORUM 2000 conference in London in June, and I will be presenting more
details from the survey at the conference. Information on the conference is
available at http://www.istc.org.uk/forum.htm
I look forward to meeting many of you there.
