Send a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to any of the addresses below.
the technical writing sample I prefer eight to ten contiguous pages drawn from
the "meat" of
the manual. Please do not send front matter or instructions about how to log
your product. (Not that the information isn't useful, but most of the samples I
are front matter/logging in and I'd like a change of pace!) Bonus points for
help submissions! (I can accept Mac, Windows, and UNIX disks.) For the marketing
