Probably true, but many of us take a strange route to get there. I think
this is in part because at the secondary eduction levels, there's very
little information to suggest tech writing is an available career choice.
(At least it wasn't where I was.) So many folks end up with varied
backgrounds. A guy not too far from me is a former truck driver/construction
worker. My background was originally in broadcast journalism. And there
are probably a million other stories out there.

I think that -this- was the intent of the original posting.
