resourcefulness and willingness to research/play with the product/read code.


I've been at two or three places where writers were not allowed to experiment with the latest builds, or were given hardware that could not run the company's product. At one place, when I requested information my SME handed me a copy of the book I was supposed to update. One frustrated but resourceful writer wrote a new document full of blatant lies and sent it out for review.

Another writer, even more resourceful, included, "For further information telephone (SME's real cell phone number) any time day or night." That review copy went ONLY to the reluctant SME. Very dangerous technique, probably best avoided.
