Subject:Ratio of writers to developers From:Bob Handlin 1331 <BHandlin -at- CHIPCOM -dot- COM> Date:Sun, 2 Oct 1994 09:28:00 PDT
There was an article on this topic in the Q4 1990 *Technical Communication,
Journal of the Society for Technical Communication*. Unfortunately I've
lost my copy (but I have a photocopy of another article from that issue, so
I'm pretty sure about the reference).
I desperately need the info to argue that we're understaffed here. In fact,
I'd be much obliged if someone could post a summary of that article here.
