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.
Okay... this isn't the site I'm thinking about, but enter "telecommuting" and
press "GO" and you'll come up with a wealth of information (and seems valid!)
about telecommuting jobs, research, articles, links, etc. etc. http://home.miningco.com/
