And this is why I wanted to start blogging about Agile. There are
lots of resources out there for developers who want to learn how to be
successful with Agile: books, blogs, workshops, courses, conferences,
people offering their services as consultants and coaches. But there
isn't the same level of support for the technical writers trying to
integrate with Agile teams.

We (meaning Agile TWs) need to start putting more information out
there to help each other learn how to make Agile work for
documentation, and how to avoid the things that don't work.
Especially since Agile has been around for a decade. There really
ought to be more resources by now for Agile technical writers.
