Just came across ANOTHER new name for a technical writer. Every hear of a Technical Writer Generalist?
How many names is that now, five? six?

Yeah, and did you catch that quoted salary? $35 to $38 per year!

Why do we tech writers have to be cursed with proofreading everything
we see? Others see "12 ITEMS OR LESS" and step right up with a cart full of 35 items. We think, "That should be 12 ITEMS OR FEWER," and then start counting the items on the cart ahead of us, resulting in excessive and unneeded brain fever. And don't get us started on the produce section with its "FRESH" ORANGE'S 2$/LBS.
