TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am 62 and my boss is 43. We have about 100 employees at our location and
I am next to the oldest female. I have been here for 7 years. Everyone I
deal with is younger than me, but people just wander into my cube to sit
down and talk - from the GM of this division to the Technology Manager to
the guy who runs the paint shop, to the 28-year old production engineer
who's overwhelmed. Sometimes it's business and sometimes it's social.
People ask my opinion and advice. In return, they are eager to help me
whenever I need it. Maybe I'm the mom figure, but the key word is RESPECT.
Give it and you get it.

There are people who reshape the world by force or argument, but the cat
just lies there, dozing; and the world quietly reshapes itself to suit his
comfort and convenience.
