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 think I was born after Dick was in the 6th grade. I don't remember Sputnik, but I do remember one of the earliest (if not the first) American spacewalks and life before microwave ovens.
As far as a tie to technical communication, Dick is a storehouse of technical communication information. I value his experience. Let's just say it takes quite a while to assimilate all that info. He's been a participant throughout many changes in technical communication.
