Whatâs the opposite of being *triskaidekaphobic?* (Before admonishing me to
look it up, doesnât show any antonymsâ or synonyms for that
matter.) Anyway, whatever it might be, Iâm that. My birthday falls on the
13th (not today though), so I tend to think of Friday the 13th as something
to be embraced rather than feared. Heck, I turned 40 on Friday the 13th in
Y2K, and we didnât have anything remotely resembling the Apocalypse, so
itâs all good.

If you are a bit phobic about Friday the 13th, then perhaps you need to
stay indoors today to catch up on all the really fascinating debate (like
tech comm as craft or commodity) and read about whatâs happening in tech
comm, content strategy and customer experience management here on
TechWhirl. Or be like me, stay in for a little while to catch up, then go
forth and be *triskaidekafanatical*. Hah! There you go, a new word to throw
around. Hash tag that quick!

Have a great weekend!
