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.
"Innumerate" is an apt word; it was used years ago by Garrett Hardin,
who proposed that educated people have three kinds of skill:
literacy, numeracy, and ecolacy -- in his brief definition, "a
knowledge of what comes next." Numerate thinking does not always
produce good ecological results, e.g., doubling the amount of
DDT to get rid of even more bugs.
