And I'm wondering if anyone knows if that is still the case. It was certainly so before the crash of 2000 and the advent of outsourcing. (My last contract ended when the writing was sent to CANADA, and the remaining US writers turned into managers-of-outsourced-documents rather than tech writers.)

Is tech writing still seen as a desirable profession, and are our numbers still growing in the US?
