As one does, I've collected some examples of good and bad technical
writing over the years. Most is unremarkable.

Yet, a few pieces defy description. They're utterly bizarre, madcap,
surreal or otherwise strange. Technical illustration, in particular,
seems to generate a lot of madness. To honour this zany detritus, I've
started the Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness

It's in its infancy at the moment, so if you've got any weird examples,
feel free to send them along. I'm not looking for bad tech
writing--there's plenty of that out there. I'm looking for the curious
and the inexplicable. Thanks. DB.
