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.
Much as I hate "Me-tooism", I agree with Sue.
It's a minor (larger then that to those faked, granted) annoyance
from somebody who just want to stir up the muck and get attention.
FWIW, I thought the "Feminization" question was a valid one.
We've seen other trades/professions become pink-collar ghettos...
why not us? In many ways it seems to me easier for a woman
to get hired as a writer than as a programmer, which says
nothing about the women's abilities, but a whole lot about the mindset
of the folks doing the hiring!
