Achieving Technical Writing Excellence.
My take-away from the blog post is that even in our brave new world of technical writing as type-driven topic-based content management, writers are achieving excellence using the oldest tech writing maxim in the book: writing for the reader. It was thrilling to read these words:
"You always have to be conscious of your audience, for they are the ones who will be gaining the most from your words. Write for them — not yourself."
Technical writing excellence is not about clever use of tools. It's about communicating the information that the user needs. It's about the user. It always will be.
