My point exactly. STC cannot be expected to meet all of your tech writing needs either. And I doubt they have any intention of doing so. Some sessions related to major content areas would be useful, but to expect a large chunk of a conference for all tech writers to be dedicated to one very specific content area is unrealistic.

Anyway, the whole thing has grown rather tiresome. Personally, I think the OP's distaste for STC is about as over-discussed as whether one should use one period or two after a sentence. And much less useful. I'd like to see it consigned to the same "no longer to be discussed on techwr-l" file, so this is my last post on the subject.

(and there was much rejoicing...)

You're stretching the scope of their marketing plan, methinks. They cannot
meet all of your needs, but then, they have no intention of doing so. Just
as a computer user guide isn't designed to meet all of your documentation
needs (it certainly wouldn't show you how to change your spark plugs),
neither should The Gap attempt to meet all of your clothing needs.
