The impact of Web 2.0 technologies on technical documents
We've been hoping to publish a report on Tech Writing 2.0 (the impact of Web 2.0 technologies on technical communication) in time for Ellis' presentation on this subject at the ISTC conference.
Well, the conference is next week, and we've published the report today. We've made it.
This report outlines the developments in what many are calling "Web 2.0" and the impact that these developments may have on technical and user documentation. We've called these trends "Tech Writing 2.0".
Tech Writing 2.0 promises a new means of communication that business can use to promote and support their products and services. This means that the nature of technical communication will change.
It's probably the biggest change to technical communication since the Internet.
This report represents the situation as we move from 2006 into 2007.
