Not enough : )

We are three: one senior editor and two writers. We illustrate, index, write
and process the words ourselves, and proofread each other's work.

We produce documentation (introductory books, release notes, reference
materials, tutorial materials, and a programming manual) for our workstation
products (Alias Animator, Alias PowerAnimator, Alias Designer, Alias Studio and
Alias AutoStudio). It's a lot of pages, but some of it is reusable across

We also produce a reference book, quick reference card, and tutorials for Alias
Sketch!, a MacIntosh product.

And we put information for Alias Eclipse into its final form (it's documented
where the development team is, in Connecticut).

Do we need more bodies? Doesn't everyone? : )
