I edit scientific papers & write marketing materials about the R&D that goes on
at the Lab where I work (some of it's pretty impressive stuff). Techwrlers do
seem supremely unaware sometimes that some of us *don't* write computer
documentation or on-line help. (Or maybe I'm the only one who donesn't?) {:-)

Reading this list makes me wonder not only how I lucked out enough to get the
world's most interesting job, but also if I may have the last job of its type in
existence?
