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.
And, the surprising aspect of that revelation is...
what, exactly? :-)
I'd be interested to know if reputable private
schools use the same texts as do government schools.
Or if, using what's available, they review and correct
them before trying to teach from them.
