Dan, these numbers do not show a negative shift in US technical writer
employment as a result of offshoring. They show US trends through 2007
and the trend where the available data ends is positive. Nowhere is
there a representation of US technical writer job numbers in decline
as a result of increased offshore technical writer numbers. Please
correct me if I am wrong.
