I've never heard of "information anxiety" in technical writing. You talk
about "the sheer stress of playing 'catch-up' with advancing
technology," but I would think that part of the reason tech writers love
what they do is because it gives them the opportunity to learn new
things, new technology. Someone who didn't totally enjoy learning, who
didn't enjoy the challenge of staying on the cutting edge probably
shouldn't be in tech writing. At least that's been my experience and I
would like to hear what others have to say.
