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.
Prentice Hall published Sun Technical Publications' _Read Me First : A Style
Guide for the Computer Industry_ in 1996. You can read a review in the
November 1997 issue of _Technical Communication_. Amazon.com still lists the
book as available.
