Hi Chris,

I am of that species too...but in addition, I need to interview candidates for junior positions, assessing them, interacting with prospects, and troubleshooting when a project enters a whirlpool. I love them all and enjoy them equally...

Regards,

Which gives rise to a real tech comm question. What
is our specific piece of the pie. Are we glorified
typists, instructional designers, writing tool
jockeys? I have been watching quietly for several
months and find most of the discussions here to be
matters of opinion regarding what's the latest and
greatest application out there that handles it all.
The technical writing Holy Grail, if you will.
Single-source, publishes to any media, handles images
like a Kodachrome, and washes my dishes after dinner.

Am I an inept dinosaur because I write instruction in
Word, PDF it, and send it off to the gateway
publisher?

Sorry, I like my simple job of interviewing users and
sme's, taking shots, and writing in plain English (my
language of choice). Is anyone else out there
actually happy to be a Tech Writer?

This isn't a bucket to discuss communications in any
form. This is
about technical communications. Technical
communications is a very
specific piece of the communications pie."
