Al, Connie, and Eric do an outstanding job because they're technical writers. Corporations with tremendous resources do poorly only when they fail to listen to the technical writers.

I agree completely. Content on Techwr-l gave me my first information about the wide world of technical writing, and has always been a superior source for learning more. The only advantages STC offered were the chapters and SIGs, which provided a way to network more directly. Those advantages have been very minor more recently, although many volunteers have done their best to keep things going.
I too offer my thanks for Al, Connie, and Eric efforts. Even more, bemusement at how they have managed to do so much so well, while so many corporations with tremendous resources managed to do so little so poorly...
