"Cool" titles for tech writers that I have seen:

- Content Extrusion Module
- Wordsmith
- Wordware Engineer
- Chief Explainer
- Geek Translator
- Word Wrangler

While amusing, they seem like they would require some explanation to ensure
the other person really gets what they title holder actually does. Which
might not be a bad thing!
