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.
I've used several printed user guides and manuals that noted in the
introduction or preface that the publication had been intentionally designed
with blank pages at the end of chapters. This was done to encourage
note-taking, or simply for aesthetic reasons. However, this message could
easily escape the notice of a printer's assistant, secretary or even a
skilled technician who doesn't have the time to read the entire document
from start to finish.
