Of course! I would say that the only criteria for being a techwriter is
being able to communicate to a non-user what a product can do.
I don't think it's necessary to understand programming, electronics, etc.
Just understand what the programmers, etc, want to be able to do with the
program and then explain that to the user, clearly and simply.
