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.
Here is a list long of Friday TECHWHRL questions. I hope they spur some input.
1. What newsletters do you subscribe to (technical, language-related, misc.)?
>> e-mail? I subscribe to my alumni newsletter, techwr-l, HATT, framers, javahelp, tsd, dilbert, and comics.com
2. What sites do you bookmark and access regularly?
>> way to many to count. I read roughly 5 blogs/day, plus about 15-20 web comics, plus TSD, plus wikipedia
3. What diversions do you subscribe to or regularly access? How much time a day do you feel is justified in accessing/reading these kinds of things? (A former team leader suggested 5 minutes for every hour.)
>> online? I consider techwr-l and other tech writing lists a diversion
4. And perhaps to put everything in proportion, how many hours a week were you hired to work and do you actually work?
