Just because it’s a short work week here in North America, doesn’t mean
it’s not a busy one. As you wind it down, visit TechWhirl to get the
lowdown on TCUK, the latest news and events, and some curated goodness in
Tech Writer This Week.

That three-day weekend gave the email discussion list <>,
a chance to ponder some new topics that might interest you: chickens and
pigs and agile tech writers; document checklists, vector tools for the Mac
iOS crowd; lectures, PowerPoint, Jira, GitHub and a lively debate on
starting chapters on recto, verso, or it doesn’t matter pages. If you don’t
know “recto/verso” think about all those “this page intentionally left
blank” docs you see, and you’ll start to understand why it’s a debate.
Carry on...

Have a great weekend!
