Tech Writer This Week – March 14, 2013 – TechWhirl
TechWhirl’s Weekly Roundup of the best technical communication, content, user experience, and technical writing posts on the web.
Wandering over into Content Strategy, we find the Guerrilla Editor (guerrilla-editor.blogspot.com) telling us there is no such thing as a finished website. And Mark Tilly (hbusiness2community.com) says content curation builds writing confidence.
In User Experience, Andrew Zusman (uxbooth.com) talks about how awkward ordinary keyboards are for those who have only one hand — or one arm. Cheryl Platz (huffingtonpost.com), describes how even small changes can make big differences for your users. Jay Selway (uxmag.com) discusses why simplicity can be a rather tricky goal to achieve. And Frank Guo (uxmatters.com) delivers the long awaited part 3 of his series on the Four Elements of User Experience.
This week, the Career and Life grab bag offers a ton of troubleshooting help straight from Microsoft, courtesy of TechSupportAlert (techsupportalert.com). Ilya Pozin (techritesolutions.wordpress.com) clues us in on how to recover after screwing up in the office. I’m bookmarking this one, because you never know. And Susan Harkins (techrepublic.com) discusses 10 features of Office you really should know about.
