I was on a bus in Jerusalem on a weekend off from basic training. The guy next to me apparently knew on sight that I was an American immigrant, despite my Israeli army uniform. He said, "Your spaceship exploded." I had no idea what he meant; from the plural "you," I thought he was joking about my infantry unit (which barely had a jeep, let alone a spaceship).

Being an American immigrant in Israel was an easy entry into tech writing, so there's your tie-in.

... So where were all of you the day it happened? I was at my desk when a coworker told me about it. I was almost two years into my first tech-writing job for a computer accessories company here in Atlanta. This was after 10 years as a newspaper/publications writer/editor up north.
