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.
In response to Chad's question (Why do some of us subscribe to the
list?), I subscribe to find out about Tech Writers in general. If
E-prime and active verbs concern professionals in tech writing, I want to
know about it.
Chad, I also attend Cal Poly and found out about the list after Ms.
DeMeritt forwarded one of the messages to her Corporate Communication
students last quarter.
Soon, I hope to enter the work place as a tech writer. And when I do, I
want to be aware of what tech writers "discuss." For now, this list
"connects" me to some of the issues professionals face.
