TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Here's an item that should spark some interest. According to the Wall Street
Journal of January 27, 2000, in the page 1 "Business Bulletin" Column:
"When all else fails: O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., a Sebastapol, Calif.,
publisher of Internet books, offers a new series called 'Missing Manuals.'
O'Reilly says some software makers offer only online help, so it brings out
the 'books that should have been in the box.'"
Thanks, Tim O'Reilly, for showing that SOMEONE knows how to make a profit
from selling documentation!
