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 just read "How to Write a White Paper: A White Paper on White
Papers" by Michael Stelzner (www.stelzner.com). The document is an
*excellent* piece. It simultaneously tells and demonstrates how to
write a good white paper (being an example of its own best practices).
According to its web site, the document has been downloaded 200,000
Before that, I learned how to use NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install
System) to create an installer for our product. (We're a small
startup, so everyone needs to do whatever they can.) I took a class in
assembly language in the spring of this year...I never thought I'd use
that knowledge, much less so soon. (NSIS is assembly language-based.)
If you ever want to learn how to create an installer but don't want to
spend any money, check out http://nsis.sourceforge.net. NSIS has been
used by Sun, Google, and Apache, to name a few. It has quite an active
developer community, as well.
