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.

mainframe list which you can follow as newsgroup bit.listserv.ibm-main.
I will post any replies on that list to the techwr-l list since most
mainframe people are not subscribed to this list. I will also post
useful replies that are on the technical writers group which I am
following as newsgroup bit.listserv.techwr-l to ibm-main. As someone
who avoided flowcharts if at all possible, I will be interested in the
replies. I also recommend both newsgroups to those interested in good
discussions related to the groups respective charters and some
