Tom Johnson: A Modern Day Technical Writer
Tom Johnson: A Modern Day Technical Writer

Alex Otil, a student at Northern Illinois University, recently interviewed me for an article titled Tom Johnson: A Modern Day Technical Writer. It's a short article probably mainly of interest to students thinking of entering the field of technical writing. Students will also find the newsletter as a whole full of relevant information about entering technical writing.

By the way, the title of the article definitely deserves a follow-up from the opposite perspective -- a spotlight of an ancient technical writer. (If you click the link to read the PDF, it's the last article.)
