Consulting? I thought you were working on an upgrade of your book on
freelance tech writing, although I guess it is close to consulting. I would be
interested in knowing what the best fields are currently for tech writers. I
was a tech writer when the hot subjects were radar, missiles, launch systems,
avionics, and mainframe-size digital systems. (For example, I wrote about
digital communications gear for the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System,
but that was more than 30 years ago.) It was mostly about those and other
military goodies, and I haven't been directly into tech writing since,
although I have considered getti ng back into it. But it seems to me, from the
rather limited view I have of it now, that the focus is mainly on desktop
computers and related gear. Only today I steered someone to your current book
and other sources as leads for gaining entree into tech writing, but I need
soem up-t-date-information myself, and I suspect that I am not alone in that.
