The Continuing Evolution of a Profession?…?and My Role in It
Grice, Roger A.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v45 n4 p402-411 Oct 2015
In my half century as a technical communicator, I have seen many changes. The profession has evolved from one that supported the work of engineers and programers to one that stands on its own, providing important tools and capabilities to audiences. I too have evolved within the profession--from someone who had little idea what technical communication was, to a practitioner, to an educator. The changing nature of the profession and my participation in it has made for an exciting time--our profession is anything but dull.
