Another big week of doings throughout the world of technical communications
and content management (and other worlds too, but mentioning that would be
off-topic). TCUK looks like a smashing success, good help from Craig
Cardimon, an FAQ template from Rachel Houghton, and a poll question on
copyright traps in the world of technical content. And that’s just on

Our new community forums are chugging along, adding some great new voices,
and engaging some we already respect. The big news here is that we are
moving up our timeline to migrate the email discussion list to the
community forum platform. By this time Monday, commenting and the list
will be living together as one big happy, cantankerous and occasionally
contentious family. Many thanks to Techwr-l founder Eric Ray for his
invaluable assistance in converting from the old platform to the new. He’s
mastered the dark art of the old platform, and has already made it all look
easy… even if it isn’t. For you it will be.

Have a great weekend!
