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.
If I may, I will try to inject one more level of humor to the situation
(but not demean it for our suffering friend). This week I was notified
by my fellow SMEs of the annual Geek Pride Day being held in Albany, NY.
*THAT* was better than any greeting card! ;->
