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.
Our design teams meet all the time to hash out new product features. I want the requirements writer to be involved in all of these meetings to capture not only the agreed-upon requirements, but also to capture the discussions so that s/he can understand the business and technical issues that underlie the requirements. So, I'm not open to a telecommuting situation.
