Okay okay, I left out an important piece.
True that if I'm writing a truly technical doc, bland predictable
writing is essential (or rather the byproduct of effective communication).

So here's more background. The doc I'm working on is a markety
technical overview of the network. So doesn't this paper have to
sound a little more flowery? It's the few paragraphs that
executives (i.e., ppl with the money) will be reading, or so I'm told.

It's kind of funny; because we know our audience, part of the
objective is to write in a way that we know they won't understand
(dropping all sorts of acronyms and not explaining them - BGP,
OSPF, MPLS, etc...) and thus inspire questions.

Or maybe I have this marketing slant on things totally wrong.

ps JohnPosada, what's STC competition stuff?
