Re,

Does anybody remember Runoff, NROFF/TROFF, and similar markup languages

Does anybody remember taking stuff to the secretary to be typed up, sending it to the typesetter, waiting to get the proofs back, and then repeating the cycle as weeks and months pass?

Our jobs definitely include work of a type once considered lower-level: typing, typesetting, paste-up, printing (copying) and binding.

Has this made a change in the profession's "personality type," as people who prefer not to deal with hands-on, concrete document production move on to something else?
