Those who film documentaries and also documenting things.

Playing Devil's advocate here, why can't documentary film makers and technical writers/communicators share the title "documentarian?"

I know you folks have strong opinions, so let 'em rip.

Don't want to get into another "title" thread, but I had two reactions:

* That's kinda cool. I could think of worse things to call myself, but...
* Don't they call people who make documentary films "documentarians"?

That's not how I describe myself. I'm a technical writer.
