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.
Extreme views on both sides of the argument here. Andrew feels that almost
everyone is looking for a way to do the least possible by any means
possible, and Rick thinks that someone who dedicates their life to their
work is a fool.

Are we supposed to admire this man? He is a fool. If he has a family, then
his long hours will never repay him anything remotely worth what he is
losing. (If he does not have a family, then his work is his family and his
friends, so he's not working 15 hours/day, he's semi-working and
semi-recreating 15 hrs/day.)
