I am lucky enough to work at a relatively unconventional company. (At one
point, or CEO's title was "Master of the Universe" or something like that.
Now that we're more established, he's resorted to the conventional title of
"CEO.") For the first time in my tech writing career, I'm not in a job
where I was hired as a tech writer. Instead, I'm a Customer Care
Representative (i.e., customer service person) who gets to write the
company's much-needed documentation, edit/proofread new screens, and do
some QA. I was told to come up with whatever title I liked. So far, I
haven't come up with anything, but I'm getting some good ideas here!
Content Scribbler has a nice ring to it!

While the names are fun to think about, I'm like several others who posted
here: I was always, and still am, perfectly happy with the title "Technical
Writer." Well, I'm partial to "Tech Writer" because I think it sounds just
a little cooler!
