Not translating at all from my perspective. I had been away from tech pubs
for a number of years when I was laid off last July. One of the avenues I
pursued in looking for a new job was technical writing. In spite of having
written documentation in a variety of areas (financial, expert systems,
search, e-commerce) and having had 10+ years experience in the field, I
found nothing. My wife and I ended up selling our house south of Silicon
Valley and moving to SoCal.

So clearly companies were not that desperate for technical writers.

How's that translating into tech writer workloads? Burning midnight oils,
more contractors, or...?
