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
1. What newsletters do you subscribe to (technical, language-related,
*TECHWR-L and a couple other similar lists. Also CSN (ClientSide News) and
CSA (Common Sense Advisory) are good news items to get if you are involved
in translation/localization at all.
2. What sites do you bookmark and access regularly?
*Always, always Googling stuff. I like to learn as much as possible and I
definitely have LOTS to learn.
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.)
*Music and related topics as much as possible...it definitely sooths this
savage beast and keeps me sane (relatively anyway).
4. And perhaps to put everything in proportion, how many hours a week were
you hired to work and do you actually work?
*On a 40 hour salary and typically work about 45 or so but that obviously
fluctuates depending what is going on.
