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.
Hi Mike! I am also a new subscriber and tech writing student (hoping to
graduate in Spring!). My chief reason for subscribing to this list
(besides it an Internet class assignment) was to get a picture of what was
happening in the "real world" of tech writing. So far I've seen more
messages about restricting postings than anything else.
I agree with you. Worrying about annoyances like spammers and anonymous
insults takes up a lot of time and space that could be devoted to talking
about tech writing.
I wanna know about jobs! --and especially about what seasoned
professionals find most interesting/annoying/insupportable/fantastic about
the way things work in this field. (OK, so I will check the Archives, too)
