Hey...everybody should have a hobby.

... when you consider what passes for "technical writing"
in the areas that most of the population is exposed to: Instructions for
the care and feeding of household products and appliances.


Yeah who writes those manuals anyway. Do they bother bringing in technical writers or do they just draft someone in the company?
