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.
I used to try to match the "bribes" to the meeting members. For example,
doughnuts and bagels to marketing and engineers. However, I once brought
Mexican jumping beans to a meeting with some accounting people. The metaphor
was supposed to be "they jump through hoops," but somehow the bean counters
saw it differently.....oh well, I didn't need that contract anyway.
