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 agree with sgodrey's book review. In spite of the title, "The Complete
Idiot's Guide to Technical Writing" is a _great_ newbie book, and it is not
written "down" to "idiots." I highly recommend it, and I don't even know the
authors (yeah, go girrlz!). Although much of the content I knew from
experience, the book serves as a good reminder for working tech. writers,
and confirms that we do really know what we're doing!
Plus, it's nice to see quotes from our fellow Techwhirlers!

"Technical Writing for Dummies". Apparently it's an excellent resource for
those entering the field. Thanks. DB.<<
I found the Complete Idiot's Guide to be a good resource, filled with actual
industry terms, references, and processes. As many of you know, it even
valuable resources like this list, which is a real help to many tech
