That was my first impression. More job postings are looking for local candidates with strong English skills. I think that the Indian dominance that has been present in IT for a few years may start to wane.

The authors of this article are also making comparisons between technical writing and other types of technical writing. Changing the type of technical writing, as they have done, does not suggest that technical writing has died, it suggests that technical writing has spawned, so the field is growing.

Well, technical writing is still a fast-growing field in the US. But the two authors are based in India, so perhaps the field is dying there.
