Sad to see the end of something that worked for so long.

I found the analysis near the end particularly insightful:

"STC is no longer the single point of access to information for
technical author training and has not been since Google opened its
doors. We're middlemen competing against free. If the internet is
anything, it's a pesticide for middlemen. "

Sadly many, many chapters have folded for this reason over the past few
years. Mine (TechValley) included.
