I gotta ask:

If during an interview you pull a manual you wrote out of a briefcase and
let the interviewer(s) look at it for a couple minutes, do you REALLY
think there's a big threat of them A) understanding, B) remembering, and
C) stealing this information?

In every interview I've done, the interviewers have only briefly skimmed
the manuals, basically looking to see if they looked nice and contained
anything remotely recognizable as tech writing on their pages. Is my
experience far different from the rest of you?

Just curious...
