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.

As a technical writer, I don't find my Palm all that useful. As a person,
it's tremendously useful. I no longer stress about all the things I have to
remember to do (groceries, dry cleaning, post office, etc.).
Maybe it's because my Visor was given to me as a personal gift. Maybe I have
some hidden prejudice against using personal things for work. But I've got
paper around my cube that I use to keep track of my "to do's".
