I haven't done core technical writing. Ever. Although I've written loads of
how-tos, wiki pages, manuals, and illustrations, I've never written a help
file, and have never spent more than a few months in FrameMaker.

The most fun I've had, I'm still having. I support a CMS at the City of
Vancouver, and have had the pleasure of writing content and coding
front-end interfaces for numerous sections. This past week I was in
training to better support the backend and implement improvements directly
into the CMS.

Some examples of front-end stuff:

- Home safety tips from the fire department: http://bit.ly/covfiresafety
- Organizational chart: http://bit.ly/covorgchart
- Sample map of development master plan: http://bit.ly/covhpplan

Yeah, tooting my own horn here--Again. And most of you might have seen this
before. The source code is easy to find, being on a public website and all.
What's important is to get the initial idea to work into the project. And
having the opportunity to exercise these ideas was a great opportunity for
me.

Cheers,
-Tony
