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.

Perhaps. Perhaps not. Chances are that 100 years from now, people will be
quoting Hemingway more often than they will be quoting me. Of course that is
a bit mis-leading - people will be quoting Hemingway for more reasons than
just his taste for hot lead.
Likewise, his suicide was a culmination of his self-destructive nature, not
because he didn't wear a magnetic id card on a lanyard (I think). Of course,
this statement ties into the other conversation regarding "assumptions".
Then again, choosing to wear magnetic id cards on lanyards and sitting in
cubicles may just be our method of living a self-destructive life.
