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.
My experience has been that I have been able to telecommute, oh, going on 5
years now. I am willing to go in but lots of companies just don't have space
for me. Now, I have been a consultant since I was 22, so 14 years, and I
have a proven track record, so that may be why I am able to telecommute. But
I live in Minnesota which is a pretty anal type of place when it comes to
people wanting you to come in. I also take practically anything that comes
my way, web page design and creation, manuals, online help, technical white
papers, books, etc. This lends itself to be so diversified in my writing
that I am never without work, mostly I'm swamped.

>From other posts on this subject, it sounds as though telecommuting
is still popular in Silicon Valley. However, my impression (which
could be wrong) is that this is an exception.
