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.
I've been on this list for over a year now, and I must say that I have
NEVER seen it so boring and irrelevant. Any posting that comes up from
techwr-l is almost an automatic delete. STC campaigning, personal
attacks, requests for marrow donors (and I'm sorry, Julie--while this
request may be honest, most of these requests are hoaxes, and TECHWR-L
is not the appropriate forum for it). I'm on a list which discusses
Shetland Sheepdogs, and that list is WAY more on-topic, has much more of
a variety of subjects discussed, and is significantly more interesting
than TECHWR-L at this point.
What can we do to get back some of TECHWR-L's glory? Who's willing to
throw out some useful topics? Help!
