I'm sorry, I seem to have trouble understanding the question.

If you have already interviewed other people what they think about tech
writers, what use is it to ask us what other people think about us?
Surely these selfsame other people you have already spoken to know their
own conceptions of tech writers better than we do?

So what are you asking us?
