Pretty funny, Barry. I had to laugh! To answer John more seriously, I grew
into management (providing the vision for the educational set) and also
learning tools, not just reference material or documentation, but products
that teach.

As a challenge I am learning to use my mouse left handed.

On days when I want a real challenge, I take a different route to work.

I am currently a senior technical writer. In another five to ten years I
hope to be a senior master technical writer.

To challenge myself further, I am currently memorizing acronyms and buzz
