I suggest you go to school if you have the time and the money. I highly
recommend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (www.rpi.edu), as that is where I
went.

Sure, a science and engineering school might be the last place a writer
wants to spend four years, but the tech comm courses there are top notch.
RPI focuses on the techie side of writing - documentation of processes,
specifications and yes, end-user docs too. The school is also heavy into
computers (duh). You'll learn a lot about Web authoring, document design and
delivery, technology trends and perhaps a little Help authoring.

If anyone has any questions about the school, please drop me a line. I'm not
affiliated with them in any way other than having the school's name on my
diploma (you graduate with a BS in communication).

"The places I hiked to! - The roads that I rambled
To find the best eggs - that have ever been scrambled!
If you want to get eggs - you can't buy at a store,
You have to do things - never thought of before."
from: "Scrambled Eggs Super!" by Dr. Seuss
