I believe the resistance is caused by US (professional technical
communicators). Actually, it's the lack of resistance which has caused the
situation. I've heard it in a dozen responses.... "no money honey" ..... the
boss made me do it. When the liabilty dollars begin adding up because of
misunderstood illustrations... bingo! I believe the SOLUTION is within us.
Writers have the STC. Although the STC is supposed to be for all technical
communicators, if illustrators were a force within the STC, the
writer/illustrator animal would never have survived. Dig?
