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 suggest putting your email address (and a URL for any corporate
home page, which should also include your email address...) in the
front of any manuals, brochures, etc., and on a reader's comment
form at the back of all manuals. People still like to write RCFs
(which should *always* be acknowledged, either by return mail or
by an email message--so solicit the reader's email address, as well),
but email encourages comments that would normally not be given.
I've always found that people have to be pretty ticked to tell you
something is wrong with a book via snail mail, but they'll fire off
an email more quickly for small stuff (sometimes very small...true).
