Subject:Math vs. writing From:"David Blyth @second" <dsb -at- ALSYS -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 10 Nov 1994 11:29:59 PST
Tech Writers are not failed Mathematicians any more than Mathematicians
are failed Tech Writers.
Some Tech Writers _choose_ writing over math. Perhaps they believe it
is more important and rewarding to make technology usable then to
develop more technology - especially when our *current* technology is
not very usable.
