I, too, agree with Lori Lathrop and Marc Santacroce. I have learned
many things from the job postings/seminars on this list. For job
postings, while I may not currently be looking for work (and have
never been to New Jersey, for example), I see what employers are
looking for in a technical writer. The skills most sought after in
New Jersey aren't going to be too far off base from what's sought
after out west. Through the job postings, I know what I need to
learn or improve on.

As for the seminars, while the Boston-area STC chapter's seminar may
be a tad too far to travel for me, it's good to see what other
chapters are doing. The topics may give the rest of us ideas to
present seminars/workshops at our local STC chapter or in-house
training meetings.

FWIW (and have a relaxing weekend),
