Teddy Roosevelt’s River of Doubt

Roosevelt and the River of DoubtThis podcast from IT Conversations was pretty fascinating, though it has little to do with technology. Teddy Roosevelt took an insane journey up a deep Brazilian river and nearly died. In this interview, Moira Gunn (an excellent interviewer) talks to Candice Millard, author of the book on Roosevelt’s adventure. It made me wonder why we do the crazy things we sometimes do.

I'm a technical writer working for a gamification company called Badgeville in the Silicon Valley area in California. I'm primarily interested in topics related to technical writing, such as visual communication (video tutorials, illustrations), findability (organization, information architecture), content development (DITA, testing), API documentation (code examples, programming), web publishing (web platforms, Web design) -- pretty much everything related to technical writing. If you're trying to keep up to date about the field of technical communication, subscribe to my blog either by RSS or by email. To learn more about me, see my About page.
