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.

Excellent point. Those few of us who refuse, on principle, to "document a
software application" and who, instead, insist on documenting what humans
need to do to make the silly things do what we need them to do, are the last
holdouts from the previous epoch.
Dammit, we are the users, not the usees.
I may be a relic, but I will go down fighting that battle.
