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.
>> Taking notes is useful if the contents of the notes will be otherwise
useful to you in doing your job. If it's not just say no (if you can
afford to do so and keep eating). You have to maintain a line between
being a team player and winding up doing all the scudgy work that
isn't technical writing.<<
My problem is that meeting minutes are part of my job description. I
don't know of any male tech writers who've had to do this, but us two
female tech writers working for the Pentagon's T&E folks sure do!
