I posted the following request for writers on several networking =
newsgroups, but I thought some of you might be interested too. (In my =
experience, tech writers often have secret pasts as networking =
engineers, software developers, and so on.) So here goes:
*************

I'm editing a networking textbook for Course Technology, a major =
publisher of computer books. This book is designed to prepare students =
for the COMPTIA's Net+ certification exam, and covers a broad range of =
topics. The author is Tamara Dean, of Berbee Consulting, in Madison, =
Wisconsin.

In order to make the information as meaningful as possible for rookie =
networkers, we'd like to include "real-world stories" from practicing =
professionals. We're looking for short (2 to 3 paragraph) accounts of =
events in the life of a networking professional that underscore the need =
to master the topics covered in the text. A typical story might go =
something like: "Early one Monday morning a client called me in a panic =
because....."=20

We need stories for the following topics:

Networking Standards and the OSI Model
Network Protocols
Topology and Architecture
Transmission Media
Networking Hardware
WANs and Remote Connectivity
Networking with Windows NT
Networking with Novell NetWare
Maintaining and Upgrading the Network
Analyzing and Improving Network Performance
Ensuring Data Integrity and Availability
Managing Network Design and Implementation
Documentation and Standard Operating Procedures
Training and Support

We can pay $100 per story. One story will appear at the beginning of =
each chapter, along with the writer's name and company.=20

If you're interested, please contact me via e-mail at: =
ashaffer -at- itis -dot- com -dot- =20

Thanks a lot,
Ann Shaffer
