Nov-Dec 2010 Newsletter

EditorialVolXII, Issue 6

In this last issue of 2010, we bring you a magazine with some reflections and some recollections. Some writers chose to write about their experience at the STC Conference, some other penned their thoughts on the tech writing community itself. What is it that defines us? Makes us what we are? What is it that we look forward to? What is it that we must prepare ourselves for?

Yes, the end of the year is a good time to take stock of all these questions.

I hope each and everyone of you, dear readers, grew a little, learnt something this past year. I hope you tried something new – be it a tool, or a process, or even a technique. I hope you succeeded in some endeavors. For the left-over goals, there is still tomorrow. There is 2011. 🙂

Happy new year readers, and hope the coming year is fulfilling and enriching for all of you.
