Spring in the Southeastern US is unique in its karmic balanceâthe worst
pollen allergies ever coupled with an absolutely gorgeous array of greenery
and color. The flurry of road construction projects, accompanied by
extraordinary (at least for the Southeast) traffic issues that wonât ease
up for another six months.
In the content and tech comm world thereâs a bit of karmic balance too. The
initial rush of new job postings and contracts subsides long enough to
allow our colleagues time to get oriented before trotting off for the new
season of conferences and workshops. It makes up for a long dreary winter
and battles with SMEs and assorted managers.
Meanwhile back here at TechWhirl, weâre reviewing new (and not quite new)
books that can help in tackling the latest content challenges, providing
tips and tricks for using the tools of the trade, and looking for votes and
commentary in our latest poll. And oh yeah, planning for next weekâs Fast
5 chat with the good folks of Doc-to-Help on Creating Great Content for the
up for a reminder and feel free to send questions in advance).
