Tech Comm Friday (June 22)

First off, thanks to all of the STC Chicago members who made Thursday's June Celebration possible. Thanks, also, to everyone who attended. I had a great time, and I hope everyone else did too. I have since recovered from the appetizer-induced fried food haze enough to bring you some equally tasty TC links.


  1. Awww, shucks! Thanks for the mention, Jessica. Glad my post was helpful. Yepyepyepyepyep.

  2. Excellent information all around in the links provided! I especially liked Tom's blog that touched on how tech. writers can mature and become more distant from users. And that has a consequence -- it can weaken the impact of our work. If we don't advocate for the users, our end product may have less value.

  3. Forgot to mention...also along the lines of listening to users...I especially liked Rachel's blog....It's valuable for us to cultivate a "complete beginner mode".

    This is very good to always keep in mind. --> "As Shunryu Suzuki once said, 'In the beginner’s mind, there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind, there are few.'”
