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.
(No, it's not a sneaky plug for TWS - I don't work for The Write Stuff. As
before, I'm an underutilized technical writer stuck in Victoria, BC).
Speaking of technical writing, I'm wondering if any of you have ever seen
"Please remove any deposits which your dog may make?"
(with the usual accompanying graphic of a plastic bag and shovel-wielding
human of course). Here in Victoria they tend to over-do (overdo?) the Brit
thing a bit (wordiness). Maybe
an international symbol of a turd with steam coming off it would be more to
the point with
the word "Remove", or something similar.
Time on my hands ....
