STORY: SnagIt and Performance

"Good work on this, Dan."

"Dan - You got this done so quickly!"

"Wow. I'm surprised you're already finished, Dan. That's great!"

"People, people," Dan the technical writer said, his arms raised as if
surrendering. "I can't possibly begin to field all of these compliments
at
once!"

His coworkers laughed, lightening the tone of the meeting.

Encouraged, Dan stood and announced, "The reason for my swiftness lies
within one program - and it's called SnagIt.

"I have now placed SnagIt into the toolbars of Microsoft Word, Microsoft
Explorer and Microsoft PowerPoint. This means that I don't have to switch
in and out of programs to take screenshots. Instead, I can do all of my
capturing within the Microsoft application."

He had their full attention, and he decided to take advantage.

He boomed, "Try it for me, try it for yourself, but mostly - try it for
technical writers everywhere!"

Slowly, one by one, his coworkers began to applaud.

Dan never was sure who began the celebratory conga line.
