I'm quite interested in the possibilities of wikis, blogs, etc., (commonly
called Web 2.0) for technical communication, and some web-surfing turned up
a UK company called Cherryleaf. They've published a report called "Tech
Writing 2.0 - Special report on new trends in user documentation." It's a
bit pricey for my budget ($93.00) and it promises "6,500 words of advice,"
which by my estimate is somewhat less than 30 pages.

It may be terrific; it may be no more than what I can find through STC
publications. Has anyone read it? Did it contain info and ideas you hadn't
found elsewhere?
