Subject: RE: Idiotic Tech Writing Prize
I would argue that you just defined well-written and "beautiful" in the
context of tech writing ("...getting the right info to the right people
in the right manner at the right time for the right reasons.").
But can technical writing ever be said to be "beautiful"? Or is that one
of those weird, philosophical questions we should just leave alone?
