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.
If you want to develop such a resource, then do it. No reason not to if
you're interested in the subject.
That said, my "mindmap" as it were came from existing style guides. I
have well-thumbed and marked-up copies of MMoS and Sun's "Read Me
First". Then _my_ style guide addresses areas where those books
disagree, or where I disagree with both of them, or the rare subject
that isn't mentioned in either one.
So I guess I'm wondering what you plan to offer that can't be gained
from referring to existing style guides. How do you intend to give added
value other than by providing an outline format?
