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.
LINGUIST is an often technical, but very good, digest-format list about
linguistic issues; it is much more formal, and heavily moderated than
TECHWR-L. Overwhelmingly, the membership consists of professional
linguists, with presences by psychologists, philosophers,
language-teachers, and the like, along with some interested lay-folk. You
