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.

For December we're gathering on the first Friday evening for a five-chapter
party to kick off the holidays with a gorgeous buffet, cash bar, and live
rock and roll boogie band!
The talented eight-member house band from PeopleSoft, Inc., The Raving
Daves, will play their special blend of rock, Chicago blues, and '90s
groove! Berkeley's own Earl Barron -- senior tech writer, past STC
president, and Daves harp player -- arranged to have The Raving Daves
perform for us as a special favor. They'll have just returned from Las
Vegas, where they're scheduled to open for the Temptations at COMDEX! Don't
miss this opportunity to see a talented gang of software specialists
performing the kind of music we all grew up with and love.
The Clarion SF Airport Hotel is one mile south of the SF Airport at the
Millbrae Avenue exit. After the event, take the elevator home to a beautiful
room in the Clarion at the special STC rate of $69/night. To reserve, call
the Clarion at 800-223-7111 and ask for the STC rate.
The December Bash is an official STC event co-sponsored by the five greater
Bay Area STC chapters. Members from all five chapters will be there. If you
have friends who are considering become members of STC, this is an
opportunity for them to get acquainted in a relaxed atmosphere. Membership
materials will be available.
