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.

degree. That is where I went. It is a very "engineering" oriented
school (hence the Institute of Technology part), but don't let

to travel-it is in Melbourne, FL. If you want more info, write me at
