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.

An insight into that "technical mind":
Most programmers insist that "hacker" doesn't mean a person who
breaks into other people's computers illegally, but someone who
likes to nose around learning how things work (that's a "cracker").
Originally, I had no formal technical background at all, but I've
learned and thrived and get along with most of the developers
because I have the same type of curiosity.

"In inclement weather, the people are fey,
With three thousand year old stories as the night slips away,
Remembering, Fingol feels not far away,
The giant will rise with the moon."
