Tech writing

I’m enjoying a new project today. I’m writing an illustrated Movable Type manual for non-native English speakers who will be contributing to a weblog.

Tech writing is always a pleasure. Over the years, I’ve honed the art of distilling complexity into easily followed directions and explanations.

My first tech writing was back in the early Telerama days—circa 1992—when I was helping our customers use FTP, telnet and Pine. In 1994, I wrote the oft-quoted Gentle Introduction to the Internet. Reading it ten years later is quite amusing, but at the time, these were things everyone was wondering about.
