Are we talking about scientific writers or technical writers?

Do you make a difference or not?

My understanding of a famous technical writer is someone who describes the
processes of a given technology, not necessarily scientific processes....
Do you differentiate technical and scientific processes? Should we/could we
separate them?

BTW, Rachel Carson work remains an important contribution to
humanity....Don't misunderstand me!

Let's not forget Rachel Carson. Though trained as a biologist, she worked
as
a technical editor/writer while she was writing the books that changed the
world's view on ecology and the environment. She definitely gets one of my
votes, as well as the ones I mentioned earlier.

Hi,

Thanks for the many responses I received regarding the subject of
"famous technical writers." Since I've received so many wonderful
responses, I decided to post them on a web page rather than
compile all of them and send out one horrendously long email.
You can see a compilation of the responses I received at
http://www.iwannabefamous.com/technicalwriters.html.

If you can't get to the web, please email me and I'll forward it to you
in an email.

Regards,
Bill Hartzer
