I'm not sure what you mean by "little guy." If you're trying to say to the
bulk of software writing is to the non-programmer (college kid, administrative
executive, data entry clerk, home user) who is trying to use the product.

Are all the technical writing jobs only in programming nowadays? What about
electronics? How about writing geared for the technician? I'll be getting out of

explain things to the little guy.
