I've just begun to notice in the last few weeks that the term "information
developer" is cropping up in a lot of technical writing job descriptions,
usually as an alternative description of a technical writer, but increasing
used alone. Because of this latter fact, I've had to add this term to the
list of search keywords I use when ferreting out contract work on the Web.
Is "information developer" a relatively new term or have I just not been
paying attention? <g> Anyone know anything about the origins of the term or
why it's being picked up so rapidly?

Regards,
Nina P.
