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.
Forwarded from a colleague. Please DON'T reply to me; I don't
know anything about the job, and next to nothing about the
company, except that it's a small startup and my friend sounds
satisfied with the work (there are Dilbert moments, but on the
whole, it's a good enough job for him to commute 2 hours on public
transit to reach it). The product they're developing sounds like a
potential "killer app" if it's anywhere near as good as he claims it to
be, but then he's one of the developers, so I take what he says with
a grain of salt <g>.
