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.
....I have seen well-managed projects that turned out crappy docs because
the writing was so horrible, from dense, user-unfriendly reference-oriented
information to bad grammar that obscured the meaning and the message.
Tony Markatos replys:
Wow! I have never seen such happen - fifteen years experience. Nor have I
heard of such - and I know a lot of tech communicators. Its a mystery!
Jane Carnall applauds:
Tony, this is so subtle! You convey your opinion of current standards of
writing among technical writers by including five deliberate errors in two
lines of text. (Almost *too* subtle... for a minute I didn't get it.)
