TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Tech writers who yearn to produce good documentation might find happier employment by staying away from consumer product industries.

I think part of the problem is that we shop for products based on features and naively assume that there will be quality documentation...
the kind of documentation we technical writers want to produce. The other thing is that product reviews seldom mention the documentation at all.
