I have found most hardware and software engineers to be an incredibly hard-working, hard-thinking bunch. When they do find time to write (which isn't often enough) they produce really dense, meaty stuff that their peers readily understand, but often sails over the head of a worst-case technician like myself.

It's my job to massage this Engineering Writing into Technical Writing that users and maintainers of hardware/software systems can understand.

And, believe it or not, inventing that communication is really a lot of fun and a super cool way to learn new stuff.

No, I didn't just swallow a bottle of Prozac. I'm just having a good day. Hope you are too.
