(you might remember me from Forum 90 or from your last visit to a
"tekom-Tagung" - I4m 1,94 m tall).
...and to all: I live in Germany and will be an activator at Forum 95. I will
discuss a checklist about the cooperation between technical writer and
software engineer for online documentation. A few weeks ago, there were some
80 activators for Forum 95.
Forum 95 is a unique opportunity to cross borders. Here in Germany, we do
several conferences a year, but all are in German. Forum 95 is in English,
even if many of you might have a hard time with our English. But communicating
among ourselves is one thing and professional writing in a foreign language
quite a different one...
If I can help you privately (I have no official job at Forum 95), feel free to
write. Presently, I am configuring an Internet gateway for my BBS
(TechWriter4s Home, FIDOnet 2:2490/1719, phone 49+911+591530, German user
interface). If there should be enough interest in a special mailing list about
Forum 95, I might host it.
