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.
Point 1: You said, I've never interviewed game developers, but I'm pretty sure that their resumes don't - and won't - be titled, "Technical Communicator." I responded with a description for how I use these technologies to produce technical communication and made the statement "my resume is titled 'Technical Communicator'."
Point 3: You say, "That doesn't mean that everyone who uses Flash is creating technical documentation." Where in anything I said did I imply that using Flash made one a technical communicator? That also doesn't mean that everyone who uses Word is creating technical documentation. I guess I don't understand your logic here -- kinda' twisted I think. I said some people who use flash are technical communicators. You say some people who use flash are not technical communicators. Sounds like you are supporting my point in a back-handed sort of way.
