We're trying to recruit tech writers right now. Not only are we having a
hard time getting people in the door (we're in CA -- East Bay), but those
coming in with 3+ experience are demanding at least 70K. Many want at least
75K. Perhaps it's networking writers in particular -- not sure.

I'm not unwilling to pay this, however, it seems like tech writers are
pulling the Mazda Miatta gig -- sell at whatever the buyer will pay. And
pay they will right now -- I've discovered that tech writer openings are a
dime a dozen.

Are other tech pubs mgrs experiencing this?
