The latest count, as of this morning, is 37 tech writers reporting, 21 on
staff and 16 freelancing. I didn't keep separate track, but there have been
three, I believe, who regard themselves as staff although they are paid by a
job shops and assigned to clients as temps. The ratio of 43-45% freelancers --
perhaps we should call them independent contractors -- continues to hold
rather steadily. Incidentally, I have not counted myself; although I have
been a freelancer/independent contractor for years, I have not been doing
truly technical writing in recent years, although I am seriously
considering entering that arena again. - Herm
