I agree with the others, Craig. What specifically are you doing differently that you feel goes beyond the borders of what "strict technical writing" defines?

And I do think it's worthwhile to come up with alternate terms to Technical Writer and Technical Communicator because we are in this new age.

Morning, Whirlers,

What I'm doing these days in the office is morphing from strict technical writing into technical communication. Am I doing information design, or information development?

Information Design seems to be its own discipline, you can find it on Wikipedia. But not so Information Development.

Any opinions, folks?


Cordially,

Craig Cardimon
