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.
As of January 1, 1994, the BIZCOM discussion list, sponsored by the
Association for Business Communication, shifted from the College of
Humanities at The Ohio State University to the Department of English at
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).
Subscribers exchange information about classes they are teaching, ask
questions about resources, business practices, and the like, discuss
writing practices in various professional settings, and share conferences
announcements, calls for papers, and requests for proposals.
