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.
Two books of interest on the subject of computer-related health risks are:
Healthy Computing by Dr. Ronald Harwin & Colin Haynes (ISBN 0-8144-7766-6),
published in 1992 by the American Management Association, 135 West 50th
Street, New York NY 10020 under the amacom imprint. Amacom is letting it go
out of print, so you may have to try to get it through Dr. Harwin, who
practices in Albany, CA. You can read my review of it in IEEE Micro (Aug
94). It's excellent, and quite practical.
ZAP! by Don Sellers, edited by Stephen F. Roth. [Peachpit books edited by
Roth are the only books I've ever seen with both an author and an editor
featured on the cover.] (ISBN 1-56609-021-0), published by Peachpit Press,
1994. Sellers gives his internet address as dsellers -at- hebron -dot- connected -dot- com -dot-
In his section on "the dangerous keyboard" he has pictures of the Apple,
Kinesis, and MyKey keyboards, but he doesn't say much about them. ...RM
