Re: Challenging the tech writer mythos
The post is prompted by Chuck Martin's wondering whether he can credibly
assert to a hiring manager, "That a certain unfamiliarity of a product
will actually elicit areas in which the resulting documentation needs to
focus (and also provide information for future improvements in product
design)?." This is a statement that I've heard since early in my career,
perhaps even as early as college. While I've come to believe it less and
less, and to consider it a simplistic statement on what we bring to the
table, I've only recently challenged it and, more importantly,
considered what it says about us as professionals.
