Having survived International Pi Day without a cataclysm of calories, it’s
now time to beware the Ides of March. Over here at TechWhirl it means the
end to another week of interesting content, features and reviews, and a
little history for our weekly technical communication recap.



I did a little time traveling and on the Ides of March in 2003,
TechWhirlers were talking about the The odds of finding work through
job ads<http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/0303/techwhirl-0303-00505.html#.UUMc6Bx_CSp>and
technical
skills vs. writing skills
(again)<http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/0303/techwhirl-0303-00507.html#.UUMdixx_CSo>.
And back in 1993, the Ides found those earliest TechWhirlers talking
about Online
documentation, problems
using<http://www.techwr-l.com/archives/9303/techwhirl-9303-00079.html#.UUMeSRx_CSo>.
Anybody notice anything familiar here?



Right here in 2013, Yehoshua Paul takes a look at whether and how the
skills required for technical writing and
training<http://techwhirl.com/multiple-emerging-roles-technical-communication-training/>overlap.
Rachel Houghton reviews
MadCap Flare 9<http://techwhirl.com/madcap-flare-9-enhancements-worth-upgrade/>,
and Craig Cardimon curates some fascinating posts from content strategy and
user experience as well as technical communications in Tech Writer
This Week<http://techwhirl.com/tech-writer-this-week-for-march-14-2013/>.




So enjoy the present and the past, and if I were you Ide have a piece of
pi….





Have a great weekend!
