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.
As long as we're talking about social and ethical issues related to computer
use, I'd like to suggest including Joseph Weizenbaum's "Computer Power and
Human Reason." The issues in this book are appropriate for the experienced and
inexperienced computer user from all academic areas. He does a good job of
explaining basic computer theory to the uninitiated and he talks about
social and ethical ramifications of computer technology.
It would be nice if a computer literacy program did more than taught people
what program to use and what key to press. Computers should be demystified
and understood on many levels.
