Itâs a thoughtful week on TechWhirlânot that it isnât always pretty
thoughtful around here, but this weekâs features seem have a higher than
usually quotient of thought provocation. From the mutual interview between
Tom Johnson and Marcia Johnston on writing in a tech world, to Lois
Pattersonâs take on conferences you might not have thought about attending,
to Jacquie Samuelsâ latest DITA article that gives some reasons for caring
about DITA.
