i have just been promoted to be the tech writer in my company. alone. just
me. with no experience. well, except a brain and some thinking power.
Hey, that happened to me! I wished for a team of tech writers...and guess
what? I got them!
My policy has been to ask for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. Apparently
I'm too demanding, but if you don't ask, well, you know what happens.
