For the next three days, I’ll be in lovely (who knows? I’ve never been there) Calgary attending and speaking at the Soceity for Technical Communicators conference. It’s going to be a party.
Can you feel the sarcasm? Technical writers (and I speak as an occasional one myself) are a frumpy and grumpy bunch. They also tend to be overly serious–they’re a tough room. Scott Adams hit the nail on the head when he created Tina the Technical Writer (she needs a fan site) for Dilbert.
What is there to do in Calgary, anyway? Any suggestions? I do want to check out the Barron building, a cool Art Deco office building that now houses a theatre and galleries. I just read about it in issue three of Toro magazine.
In short, I’ll be blogging only occasionally over the next few days.
