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.
Congrats, Bryan! Another resource for you: STC has an Instructional Design and Learning SIG that you might find helpful, particularly if you're both developing and delivering course material, either in stand-up classroom or online format.
Best of luck!

Bryan, congrats on the career change. You may want to check out the
ASTD (Association for Training and Development), which is a membership
organization for training professionals (www.astd.org). Their web site
has tons of useful resource info, discussion boards, et al., plus they
also offer online training and certification programs. I've found ASTD
very useful at those times in my career when I simultaneously handled
doc writing and training.
