Here's a crude compilation of the internet resources suggested thru
TECHWR-L. I included the addresses of those who sent me stuff in case
anyone wants clarification. Hope it's helpful; it was a GREAT help to us
in our efforts. There's a very interesting variety here. As soon as we
have the final edits done on this chapter I'll be glad to forward it to
those interested. I'll include the book title as well. I like the volume
so far.

(Answer to your news posted in bit.listserv.techwr-l)

I am a free-lance, french, tech writer
I have a workstation that gives me acces to news and e-mail (I pay
for that).

News groups that I find useful for my job are:
* The group specific to my job:
* Groups related to desktop publishing:
comp.text.frame (concerns the FrameMaker DTP software)
* Group related to human factors:
* Misc:
- news.answers is very interesting since it provides

FAQlists (frequently asked questions) concerning numerous

topics. It is a good source for reference material

concerning technical specialities.
- Since I am french, I read the various groups of the "fr."

hierarchy. This is useful to resolve technical problems,
and to ask for technical questions.

In addition, note:
- I do not read the "misc.writing" group: too far from
the technical writing field.
- In France, the use of the news and e-mail facilities is
very unfrequent in my profession. Very few (perhaps no one
but me) tech writers use these communication chanels.

Hope this helps,
Apologies for my poor english.
