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.
I took a look at the site, and the key logging isn't even the worst part
of it. They take a picture of you using a web cam every few minutes to
verify that you are there and they also take a picture of the computer
screen at the same time to make sure you're not playing Solitaire or
Big brother is here ... or rather at Odesk.
And the top amount they pay for a tech writer is less than $40 an hour
with $16 the average. Since they claim to be global, my guess is that
most of the people doing the work are probably not in the US.
Run away. Run away FAST.
