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.
To my mingled pleasure and freaked-out chagrin, one of my articles has
just been Slashdotted.
I've been Slashdotted before, but always as a marketing or
communications officer, ghosting for an executive. That meant that, if
anyone was criticized, it wasn't me.
I don't mention this to boast. In fact, I am not sure that I entirely
welcome the development. But I suspect my discomfort is due to all the
years of anonymity as a tech-writer. I'm used to taking responsibility
for my work, but only in-house and without my name attached.
It's disconcerting to be working under new rules, although I suppose I
should have expected them.
