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 had a manager who insisted on calling the technical writing staff
"documentalists". Now while it may or may not be true that one has to be a
little bit crazy to remain in this business, years later I sort of like the
image of "bending words with only their minds" and "making paper disappear
with a few strokes of the keyboard".
