Kat...I AM a direct hire on this gig.

The thing is..and I appreciate how valuable this UI training would be
for a specific path, I'm a technical writer and I don't have aspirations
to changing to development or Application User Interface Design. Advance
in technical writing? SURE. Devise systems for enterprise level
management of content? Ubet! However, I see two paths I want to take and
they goes something like this.

XML -> Database -> Single Sourcing
UML -> PMP Certification

While I can see the value of UI, if I knew that UI training could be
immediately applied against present documentation to the degree that XML
can, I'd jump for it. However, with what I want to have accomplished by
the end of the year, I think the XML route will be a more direct path.

Besides, I'm in this for the long haul, there's always next year.
