Can you describe what you mean by this? I think the original idea was looking more at modern times - the growth of the modern technical writer.

What happened in ancient times *might* be relevant, but contemporary society is where we find ourselves today. Still, I'd like to understand what you were saying.

Thanks,

Steve
