TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am an enthusiastic user (some would say a disciple!) of Dr. Weiss's
structured documentation methodology. I've passed the word along wherever I've
worked, and my books have been well received. The idea of top-down design is
easily grasped by management, and fits in nicely with Robert Horn's principles
of Information Mapping (R). (In fact, Horn's latest book, _Mapping in
Hyperspace_, is a classicly structured document!).
I would recommend the courses taught by SOLUTIONS, Inc., of Reading, MA. They
offer sessions nationwide.
Call them at (617) 942-1610 or (800) 448-4230.
