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.
Of course their materials and specific subject matter is proprietary
and bound to their use guidelines, but the general practice has been
and will be around. Information Mapping as a trademarked
methodology/technology is theirs, but the act of intelligent
topic-based authoring is generally open.
