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.

Thank you, Jim Croce. ;-) But if no one raises these issues, they're
going to go ignored.

Which one? I can try prodding if I know the manager...
I'm trying to grow interest in my local area (even though not a
chapter member) and it's tough. But I'm going to continue to try
arranging a dinner/drinks social in my area for tech writers in
general. STC members and non-members are welcome. :-)
