Subject:Academics and their writing From:Tim Altom <taltom -at- IQUEST -dot- NET> Date:Thu, 6 Mar 1997 07:47:54 -0600
Actually, it was an academic who first convinced me to be a technical
communicator: Dr. Isaac Asimov, PhD in biochemistry. For those who've read
his science writings, it's obvious that he never met a pompous word he
couldn't excise. His simple explanations of the most complex things
convinced me that there was a future in my trying to do the same. My only
regret is that I didn't write to him and tell him before he died.
