I just had them print my business cards to say "Technical Publications." It was much less confusing for all.

The idea of a "principal" as the head of a school full of children would be appropriate for some places I've worked, but not at that particular establishment.

I always thought the Principal was the chief contact for a self-run

experience, and Principal implies role.

For example, I worked at one company where we were assigned the role of
Prime for specific projects.

I've always held respect for my Seniors, but shot spitballs at my Principal.
How's that for a difference in principle?
