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.
Use "he or she" once or twice near the beginning of the document to
publicly identify yourself as someone who is aware that there are males and
females in the world, then just use "he" unless you feel like identifying
"he ... 2. the person; the one; anyone"
