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.
I think you lost something in the communication... the finder gets a bonus (and
in some cases, so does the newly). In some situations, the finder shares his or
her bonus with the newly (as there's be no bonus if not for the hire).
At least that's what I've experienced...
