STORY: Dan the Tech Writer explains why he gets so much email

"Hey Dan -" the engineer Jodie started as she swung into his cubicle. She
paused and peered at his screen. "Why do you have so many e-mails?"

"I belong to the TECHWR-L discussion list. It's a forum for technical
writers to talk about issues that relate to technical writing - you know,
to interact with people who have the same job," Dan explained.
"And, of course, you get to know people on the list. For instance, I
correspond with Ted here. He was interested in hearing more about
SnagIt, the advanced screen capture program.

"I'm telling him that not only does SnagIt offer more input and output
options than any other screen capture program, but you can also output
directly to the web, e-mail, catalog or studio. And once you have a
capture, you can include stylized captions, watermarks and borders, you
can automatically trim and scale, and you can convert and improve colors.
SnagIt really is a technical writer's dream tool!" Dan finished
breathlessly.

Jodie gave him a blank stare. "Wait. You're spending time telling him
that? You've never met him, right? You don't even know these list
people, really. I don't understand it."

"I know you don't," Dan beamed, returning to his e-mail.
