New ways of collaborative working for technical authors
"Here is an announcement of a forthcoming STC UK Chapter event to be held in Birmingham on 10th March.
Bookings for the first major STC UK event of 2007 are now being taken. To use our online booking facility, visit the STC UK web site at: http://www.stcuk.org/programme/programme.htm
Our meeting will be about new ways of collaborative working. Specifically, about Wikis and Blogs. Our speakers will be Crawford Currie, a key player in the development of Twiki, and Ellis Pratt of Cherryleaf.
This will be the first event that STC UK has organised in Birmingham, and we are hoping that the central location will encourage many people to come along. The event starts at 10:00 in the morning, and runs through until 16:30. To maintain a long-standing tradition, we'll then head on to a restaurant for an evening meal. Our venue for the meeting will be the funky, high-tech Orange Studio in the centre of Birmingham.
Cost? For STC members, this one-day event costs just £50. For non-members, the cost is £75. (Students and members of INTECOM-affiliated societies - such as ISTC - are eligible to book at the STC member rate.)"
