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.
This has been a very interesting thread, and one with relevance for many,
many technical communicators these days. I would encourage any of you who
have contributed who like doing conference presentations to put together a
proposal for the Winwriters Online 2000 Conference about telecommuting. It
could cover issues of how to get your boss to let you, to how to telecommute
as a freelancer, to why NOT to telecommute. If it was done with some
research and put forward a couple points of view (pros and cons), I think
people would find it very interesting.
If you'd like more information on the conference, click the link below. If
you want information specifically on doing a proposal, go to the speakers
page on the web site below, and then contact me. I am program manager for
the stem on personnel and project management topics.
