TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

We occasionally send reminders about rules and expected behavior to the
members of the list. We pretty much suppose that we're all adults here, and
those infrequent reminders should be enough. It seems lately that it is
not. Your moderators are essentially volunteers with full-time commitments
to paying jobs and family as well as to our TechWhirl community. Chasing
down folks who don't take the time to read the rules or ask us questions
about what's appropriate wastes scarce time and resources. Please respect
the community by remembering that doing any of the following will get you
moderated, and /or banned:
- Posting job ads... we have a site for that
- Posting solicitations or petitions of any kind ... TechWhirl is not an
email marketing house, nor do we want to risk the appearance of taking
sides in any sort of controversy.
- Discussing politics or religion or anything unrelated to technical
communications and the creation of content... we get enough of this in
other places in our lives.
- Waging ad hominem wars on anything related to tech comm or content
development.... You're welcome to energetically discuss the pros and cons
of various products, technologies, or methodologies, but the moment you
start attacking another poster, you'll be banned.
- Posting test messages or personal messages. Contact us directly for
help with your subscription.
TechWhirl is a pretty special place, and we want to keep it that way for
everyone. The technology for the list may be long-in-the-tooth, but the
rules for professional behavior are forever young. Al and I are pretty laid
back and flexible for the most part, so if you're not sure about something,
or have an idea you'd like to discuss, we're happy to listen. But if you
post without regard to the rules, you can be assured that it will have
