We figure Summer Reruns are like taking books to the beach, it’s a great
time to catch up on stuff you want to read that you’ve put aside for
months. So here’s another great opportunity to learn about heuristics for
documentation usability and the types of content management systems out
there. And then you can enjoy some great new quotes and articles from other
spots around the web curated for your reading pleasure in Tech Writer This

As media sponsor for TCUK 2013, we are delighted to put in a plug for the
largest technical communication event in the UK. And last, but never least,
we have a new weekly poll question that just about everyone in our field
and outside of it will have an opinion on. Tell us how you’ve been faring
in the recent economy.

Don't forget to stop by the email discussion list
<>for helpful, interesting, and occasionally
cantankerous viewpoints on all
things tech comm.

Have a great weekend!
