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.
Are these publications going to be served over the web or are you
looking to distribute them as files or as an app or...?
Nearly all smartphones and tablets have zero issues with web content
(save for Flash), and all should consume HTML 5 well. As with
anything, you need to test your content. I recommend installing some
device emulators. PDF can be read, but they're not the easiest to
navigate on phones (especially the multi-column layouts or wide
stretches of small font text - lots of zooming and panning involved).
I'd stick to web formats, to be honest.

What formats (are there any standards, even de-facto)? Should we shorten the text or use the same for all platforms? What about graphics?
