I bet if we did a survey, we’d find more than a few folks who prefer to let
February 14th pass as just another day of the month. But based on the
technical communicators and content experts I know, as a general rule, we’d
hang onto the chocolate. In my estimation this means we have our priorities
in the proper order.



Priorities in the proper order this week means *a lot* of interesting
debate on the Techwr-l email discussion list on a particular recruiting
dilemma <http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/1302/techwhirl-1302-00066.html>that
many of us face, the most effective use of screen
captures in documentation<http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/1302/techwhirl-1302-00033.html#.UR6CJqWSqSo>,
and a shared discussion with the Framers list on a FrameMaker 11
intermittent crash problem (with thanks to Dov Isaacs and Kapil Verma of
Adobe for providing useful insight). Getting a job, understanding
methodology and working with tools—seems like a very good priority to us.



TechWhirl continues our focus on “when worlds collide” with a new poll
about the number of different
resumes<http://techwhirl.com/technical-communication-poll-resume-alternatives/>you
keep active. Craig Cardimon curates
another great week of
commentary<http://techwhirl.com/tech-writer-this-week-feb-14-2013/>on
content, UX and technical communication, and Jacquie Samuels issues a
call
to action for content
strategists<http://techwhirl.com/content-strategists-a-call-to-action/>.
We’ve published more great material on our content management systems
research area <http://techwhirl.com/content-management-systems/>, and we’ve
always got news and boatloads of opportunities on the TechWhirl job board.



So much to do, so little time… but first a little chocolate…



Have a great weekend!
