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.
Thanks for sharing that, Gene. "Apollo 13" is one of my favorite
examples of technical writers in the movies, because they help to save
the crew, and it's based on real life history.
Also, this transcript demonstrates the importance of always knowing
where your towel is.
