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.
For an interesting discussion on dangling participles and other obsolete
grammar principles, see Woe is I by Patricia O'Conner. In her book, Ms.
O'Conner makes the point that many so called conventions are now
obsolete. IMHO writing should parallel the spoken word. When one becomes
too caught up in writing conventions, there is a great danger of the
writing becoming stilted and uninteresting.
