Yes, from a "could be worse, could be raining" POV, the last 10 years have been less dismal for tech writers than they have been for some other techies and we can generally be relieved that they weren't worse. But hoisting a toast to their continuation is something else, at least for most of the writers I know.

But given that the graph shows the tech boom crash as a steep drop, from
which the numbers have more than recovered -- yeah, I'll take that.

Wanna know who really suffered in the crash? Type in "computer
programmer" instead. You'll see less impressive gains in wages, and
terrible, uncorrected losses in sheer numbers. Compared with the
programmers, we got off easy.

Gain access to everything you need to create and publish documentation,
manuals, and other information through multiple channels. Choose
authoring (and import) as well as virtually any output you may need.
