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.
Me likes this idea. Perhaps the guy would go for 'Marketing Communication'
or 'Business Communication'. Your own sign could then say 'Technical
Communication'. This way, when people step in to your office and take up
your valuable time to ask about stuff that does not pertain to what you are
doing, you could refer them (when appropriate) to Marketing Communication
down the hall. And vice-versa for the other guy.
