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.
Without wanting to pour gasoline on this topic that, as Jerry noted,
could turn into a flame war, I would like to hear other people,
particularly those practicing professionals, comment about Jerry's
idea that ". . . all of us are technical writers." While my colleagues
and I tend to see the field of technical communication expanding into
other areas beyond those traditionally linked to 'tech writing,' I'm
not sure that everyone agrees. Any thoughts?
