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.
There was no script. The raw tapes are simply archival footage of a series of
'classes' given by the leading lights of this startup to the engineering crew in
December. The presenters are the company founders - who have (obviously) no
training in presentation. They start on a topic and wander off into other areas
and only sometimes come back. Their diction leaves a lot to be desired, and
they can't draw worth a darn. Some kind soul has made an attempt to chart where
some of the topics begin and end, but truthfully it's more like trying to
specify the edges of a cloud.
