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.
I agree. This isn't related to recent changes in tech writing; it's at the root of all that we do.

Keeping up with new technology is the job. A lot of the standards the products I'm writing about today are built on didn't exist or were not very well known ten years ago. I'm using a wiki as a single-source authoring tool, that wasn't practical ten years ago.
