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.
The Chicago Manual of Style and the US Government Printing Office
support the mandatory user of the serial comma; many journalistic
style guides, including AP, would support its use only when necessary
to remove ambiguity.
Pick the style guide you'd like to follow, or roll your own. Just be
consistent. And don't worry about falling out of fashion; writers
will still be fighting about this a hundred years from now. :-)
