Does anyone out there have a boss that has strong views on the role of a technical writer? My boss
(the president of the company) thinks that a technical should not have any *significant*
programming, networking, etc skills. He believes that it the engineers' (SMEs) responsibility to
relay the information to the technical writer for organization and explaination. Also, any company
that rejects a candidate on the grounds of being technical enough is using that as an excuse. When
I pointed out how the job reqs read and what this and other boards say, his reply was "I don't think
so."

Now, there goes my argument for taking programming classes... :)

FYI, I work in the DC Metro area.
