It just means you don't have as far to go ;)

Actually the consensus from the original thread was that real tech writers
love warm furry animals and cool, fizzy drinks (which then allows for a
whole range of soft drinks, champagne, and various and sundry beers-if
you're an American. Otherwise it could warm fizzy drinks.

Which just goes to show that recruiter knew just enough to be dangerous!

I have two cats but hate Diet Coke. Does that mean I have a ways to go
still? :-)

3. Cats. Which means Keith is working his way towards becoming a real tech
writer. I had an interview once with a recruiter who said he could tell
real tech writers by the number of cats they had. Almost as useful an
indicator as whether you use style sheets in your resume.

In fact we had a thread about a year ago on this, and discovered that most
tech writers have at least one cat or dog, and like Diet Coke. Hardly
scientific, but exceedingly entertaining.
