What technical communicators get up to

December 10, 2008

Do you think technical writers are boring people who sit in a cubicle every day looking for misplaced apostrophes?

Well, think again! Cherryleaf in the UK have added a web page called “I’m a technical writer—dispelling the myths” showcasing photos of technical communicators around the world in environments well away from their computers and desks (except, perhaps, for the dinosaur lady!).

You can see the photos here—and, if you’re a technical writer, you can contribute your own: http://www.cherryleaf.com/imatechwriter.htm

Here’s my photo swimming with a Maori Wrasse on the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland a couple of years ago (and that attractive red ‘Tele Tubby’ suit? it’s a stinger suit to protect your body from the dangerous tentacles of a jellyfish):
