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.
"Glass half empty, glass half full." Being asked to write
something other than a manual can be seen as a sign
your company if falling apart all around your job silo, or
it can be seen as an opportunity to knock down some
walls and create new opportunities for yourself by
getting your fingers into as many functional areas of
the company as possible.
