From: Mark Baker [mailto:listsub -at- analecta -dot- com] <snip> I don't know why
you think that a technical writer is fortunate to get to do someone
else's job instead of his own. I have never understood the self-loathing
of this profession. But if the intrusion of bored technical writers into
the UI design process leads to more of this sort of thing then I say,
stick to writing books. At least with a book I can put it on a shelf out
of my way.

===============

Boredom? What's that got to do with anything...I like what I do and
picked this as a second career...I didn't fall into it nor am I hanging
around until something better comes along.

I see it as part of technical writing...along with Project Management,
Business Process Analysis, technologies such as UML and XML, as well as
a slew of other things.

All of these things aren't in addition to technical writing...they are
necessary for better technical writing.
