In many places around the US, the new school year is starting or just about
to start, and those with kids are either joyful at the prospect of no
longer hearing “I’m bored,” and other summertime complaints, or frazzled
with all the preparations, from shopping for supplies to confirming school
bus routes. Back-to-school season often brings a focus on back-to-basics,
which could partially explain the underlying theme of this week’s technical
communication feature articles on Tech Writer Today.
Make plans to attend the TechWhirl Fast 5 Live Interview with Jack
Molisani<http://bit.ly/TWFast5_LavaCon>of the LavaCon Conference next
Wednesday, August 29 at noon (EST). We’ll
have a live chat via Google+ Hangouts with this industry leader about
what’s in store for the conference in October, and tips for making the
business case to attend. If you can’t make the live chat, fear not. We’ll
be recording the event, and posting it to YouTube.
Have a great weekend
