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.

This is a great idea. Whenever an index is lacking an entry I expect,
I *write it in* with my official Red Pen, so late I can add the page
reference, and "see"-references, etc. if I ever find what I need.
If it's our own document, we can fix it in the next rev.
Note: this method only works if you do it each time, Right Now.
