This week we mix in a little “original programming” with one of the great
hallmarks of summer (at least in the U.S.)—time for some summer reruns. If
you missed it the first time around, check out our most popular April
Fools’ Day article ever. Join in our unofficial renaming of our industry by
voting in this week’s poll and commenting as you see fit. And then see what
everyone else is talking about in tech comm and content management with
Tech Writer This Week.

Join the growing crowd—consider writing for TechWhirl as a member of
the Special
Writers Unit <>. To get
in touch, just drop us a note <> and let us
know what kinds of topics you're most interested. And don’t forget to stop
by the email discussion list <> for helpful,
interesting, and occasionally cantankerous viewpoints on all things tech

Have a great weekend!
