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.
That's exactly what I do. I write internal documentation that is kept on the intranet site. The index page lists contact information for the developers responsible for each application. Periodically, I will bring a printout of the index to their staff meeting and have the team review it for updating. This format was already in place before I got here, and having the users be able to contact the developers was what the developers wanted (or at least their management wanted it).
