Re: the post on May 2 by Chas. Bosdet about
technical writers/engineers/engineers who write.

Perhaps we could rename technical communicators to
Word Engineers. Then they might get more respect and
more pay.

The problem with being an expert at something that everyone
does is that the nonexperts subscribe to the fallacy that,
if everybody does it, nobody can be an expert at it.

Think about it: We all sleep, but we also allow for the fact
that there could be experts on it, people who more than we do
about it. Why not writing?

Is a puzzlement!
