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.
I'm about to go offlist, and yes, I *know* that departures and arrivals
don't need to be announced... but this is a rather good case of Cosmic
Irony. I'd made up my mind to stay in my current job until May, for a bunch
of trivial reasons that all seemed to add up to a sound platform. Then it
began to look a little ricketty, and I'd definitely made up my mind to go. I
had Friday afternoon off to go to an SF convention (and Monday to recover
in) so Friday just after lunch I sped off a number of emails and got some
very satisfactory rapid responses. I was (not) looking forward to handing my
manager my resignation at the end of this week.
On Tuesday morning were all called to a special departmental meeting and
were told we'd been made redundant. Sometimes, life is just brillig.
O brillig de Twas, e os toves slithy fizeram o gyre e gimble no wabe. Toda
mimsy eram os borogroves, e o outgrabe dos raths do mome.
