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.
In November, STC Region 8 director-sponsor Lance Gelein presented the
San Diego chapter with a fun and useful look at the technical
communication manager's job. I recommend watching the video replay of
Lance's talk. For a copy of the tape send an email message to Bonni
Graham, San Diego STC chapter president at:
Bonni_Graham_at_Enfin-SD -at- relay -dot- proteon -dot- com
Write soon because Bonni broke the news at last night's chapter board
meeting that her employer is closing its San Diego operation down. If
you don't connect in time, requests for copies of the video can be sent
to me instead.
Videos of other San Diego STC meetings are available, including George
Hayhoe's discussion of pre-planning for online documentation capability
(George is STC's national secretary), George Ledbetter's (Loral Conic's
HR manager) talk on *creative* job search techniques, and this
Wednesday's discussion "How Electronic Document Management Systems are
Critical to ISO 9000 Compliance" by Neal Fischer of San Diego's Hershey
editor, SDSTC *Signature* newsletter
