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.
People, your posts are preserved for all to see in the archives. Don't be
foolish and write something that could hurt you two years from now!
I guess I've been guilty of not thinking of this scenario when I hit the
send button, but I really think that anything I've said, which I consider
to be in public, is ok, and if a prospective employer didn't want to hire
me because I like to express an opinion once in a while, I'd have to
consider whether working for that type of employer would be ok too.
Sometimes I get a bit cynical, and sometimes I don't. And sometimes I don't
write e-mail like I write other docs. So be it.
Good advice earlier on this topic. Be good for all to read if you haven't yet.
