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.
That's the ISO's web site. They have a list of other web servers with
other international standards information. The pages are pretty much
vanilla HTML, but any browser should be able to load this site
(including my kludge 286 running Lynx at home).
I am now working in an ISO 9001 environment, and it's a world of change
from previous organizational structures. Some of the paperwork can
appear to be anal-retentive in nature, but it does wonders for
accountability, tracking, and version control.
