Hello everyone,

I've noticed that several tech writers on this list were former journalists.
I've often wondered how the two fields compared ... what do you find to be the
biggest similarities/differences? What attracted you to this field? And, what
skills (other than being able to write concisely) have been particularly useful
as a tech writer? I'm not doing a study or anything ... I'm just curious ...
