Subject: Re: Documentation Plan

Several people have asked for a copy of my Information plan. I'm afraid
this was a Misti-only offer, as there are confidentiality problems.

Buy 'Managing Your Documentation Projects'! It will repay your ~ US$40
a hundred-fold over your career. Otherwise follow the advice given by
other contributors to this thread -- it's good stuff.

Subject: QUERY RE:"Going Online" workshop

Does anyone know of plans to publish (in any medium) the Proceedings of the
"Going Online" workshop being run by Ann Rockley for the STC South-western
Ontario Chapter (Region 1) ?

I sent an e.m to Karen Piech (Workshop Coordinator) and Catherine McNair
asking for details, but this may have gone into an electronic black hole
somewhere. Any information would be appreciated.

This is my first time on this list, so please pardon and correct any breaches
of etiquette.

Replies may be sent directly to <ian -dot- lyall -at- tga -dot- ausgovhhcs -dot- telememo -dot- au> if
this is more appropriate. TIA
