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.

As a community of thoughtful people, weâre always interested in hearing
what youâve been thinking about content and tech comm. Register for the

of background and historical perspective. Doesnât even cost a penny, itâs
totally free!

Have a great weekend!
