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.
How true, for the most part. The only thing is the latest Strunk and White
does not take into account the major changes made to the English language in
August 1998 by Oxford University, i.e., split infinitives are acceptable,
dangling prepositions are acceptable, and "s" no longer exists in words like
"minimized" (except for older people who are just too used to writing
"minimised" and a few stubborn language purists who didn't accept the
changes). But other than that, Strunk and White's still is pretty good.
