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.
A big thanks to everyone who responded to my request about humor in
technical writing. Your perspectives (for, against, or it depends) are
very informative to our project. Meanwhile, what would be especially
helpful to our project is specific examples that prove humor either
succeeds or fails in communication situation. If you have such stories to
share, we would be very grateful.
If anybody is interested in a summary of the results, I'll be more than
happy to share with you.
