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.
This sounds like a lush life indeed. I find it amazing how you Italians
could build the Roman Empire with such office hours... :)

> I'm a tech writer from Italy. I am currently documenting race

> colours inspiring and it always seems there is something to
> be learned from subtle changes of the leaves with their
> beginnings so very very small, reaching reaching for the sun,
> smiling, then fading quietly away. I work to incorporate
> these lessons into my writing as I feel it's really my
> responsibility to instruct as much as inform my audience.
> Lately I've been experimenting with document format and
> structure as a reflection of the seasons. People have
> responded very well so far, I think it's because Italians are
> so creative. Around 1.00, I go to lunch with my coworkers
> Giovanni, Filippo and Davide (they are distractingly hansome
> and very well dressed). After a 3 course meal including
> delicious red wine, music and laughter, I take a nice long
> nap at my quaint and quirky vine covered home before
> returnig to the villa to work for a few more hours. Since
> moving here I've nearly forgotten what it means to be
> stressed, much less busy.
