I'm not sure this is the right place to join, as I'm Australian (although I moved here to Britain when I was 1 :P) and I am looking for region specific information.

A cousin told me about this list and how it may help me with some questions I have.

I have been doing some basic web design work as a little sideline job, and someone suggested Technical Authoring as it may suit my skills. I'm personally not so sure, but I figure I may as well look into it, eh? :)

My main question is how big is the Tech Author scene in the UK? I tried some job sites, but didn't come up with much. Is it all done by word of mouth or agencies?

What would be the best way of starting out?

Any tips/hints would be awesome. Thanks.
