Seriously? The only effective way I know to keep up with the skills of tech
writing is to work as a tech writer.

Book learning, magazines, internet lists will augment the skills, but the only
way that you will keep up with the skill is to practice it, then use the
requirements of the job as a springboard to additional skills.

Example, in my case:. Technical proposal writing > html > web page > intranets
> java and cgi

What are the best resources for keeping up with the cutting edge technology
of technical writing(besides STC)?
