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.

" Maybe so, but I'm glad we repelled that Findlay invasion.
Suppose every technical writing instructor told all his
students to participate actively in this list for the
mere sake of practice. Even if they were all polite and
literate, we couldn't handle them."
I have had my tech writing students subscribe to techwr-l for the last three
years. I consider it a valuable part of their training. I do urge them to lurk
for some time and many never move past that stage, but today, many of them are
regular contributors to this list. I would hate to lose this educational
opportunity due to an anti-student bias.
