OK...a poll.

If you have SME level knowledge in any subject and are a technical writer
about that subject, raise your hand.

Graduated in Math & Chemistry in 1966. Went to work as an application programmer in aerospace (Fortran IV). Sequed into software development (compilers, text formatters) and programming language standardization (ANSI X3J2 BASIC and X3J4 COBOL) in the 70s, and then into tech writing about 1982. When I write to the programmer audience, I'm talkin' to myself: "What would *I* want/need to know about this stuff?"
