Subject: Techwriting qualifications
Tech writing is certainly not what it was when I was in it during the
Cold War and the frantic building of new weapons. Obviously, the major
influence today is not that hardware as much as it is software. In the
opinion of you who are today's tech writers, young ones and old timers, what
would you specify as the important capabilities and credentials needed by
today's candidates for tech writing careers. - Herm
