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.
The programmers on this side of my office copy everything _except_ the
online help to their hard drives when they get new development tools.
Their office is strewn with books bent open and piled knee deep - many
with grubby yellow stickies clinging to the edges. On the other side of
the office, the programmers use the online stuff much more than the
books and so on...
In recent usability tests, the test users asked, nay, begged, for
manuals to be made available - often telling me that they learn better
from books. I learn better from online help as I explore a product.

don't sit under the Bodhi tree with anyone else but me... anyone else
