BLS shows $96,900, which is pretty close to Salary.com. Wonder why the
FTE wage/contractor rate ratio in CA is so different from here.

Salary.com says the average salary for a Technical Writer IV in Silicon
Valley is $98,000, which would be $980 a day, or >$120 an hour, about
twice what companies are actually paying.
