#techcomm  content is a key part of customer experience. Influences buying decisions.
Technical content can help organizations increase the visibility of their products in the marketplace. Officially, technical content is intended for product customers—people who buy a product and then look at the documentation. But one opinion poll indicates that about one-third of buyers1look ...

Fun example of hack coding, with a foot-tapping audio accompaniment. (Mildly NSFW image at the end.)

"The best #techcomm  writers share many of the same values that UX designers have - empathy for users and a passion for clarity, consistency, and logical flow—as well as a deep understanding of user needs, task flows, and usability."

Reframe 'simple' #techcomm  as a core part of user experience and customer experience and design. No more, no less.
By Jim Grey (about) I had lunch recently with a fellow I worked for several years ago. He gave me my last job as a technical writer and my first job as a software tester. He's currently leading pro...

Assessing the quality of #techcom  and #ux user experience is not always easy. This paper is a very helpful resource.

Ah, if only...
The screen-used film prop is the holy grail of movie collecting. It doesn’t get any better than owning something that was actually used in making your favorite movie. The only way to do that, however, is usually via auction—and there’s a big one coming up with some insanely awesome props.

Profoundly important #techcomm  consideration. Ignoring accessibility requirements is simply not an option.

Introduction
I'm a Documentation Writer for IBM Cloudant. I work on Information Architecture and Information Development for a variety of projects.
I'm active in and interested in how 'Mobile', Cloud, and documentation technologies are used in enterprises, big and small.
I'm especially interested in the idea of the 'Mobile Mindset' - a contrast to the simpler emphasis on mobile devices.

Modest size portions. The meals did not arrive at the same time: a huge delay for the second one to arrive. Rather expensive. Plenty of other better and cheaper places to go.

Very expensive. Extremely long queues for the rides, unless you pay a *lot* extra for fast pass tickets. Food options close for several hours in the afternoon, and nothing much else seems to be available. Very disappointing.
