Getting Personal: Individuality, Innovation, and Technical Communication.
Steiner, Carol J.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v29 n4 p383-99 1999
Suggests that effective communication between technical and nontechnical people is difficult because technical communication lacks a personal dimension: technical people give up their identity to be considered competent. Argues that a different approach to communication education for scientists, engineers, and technologists is required to equip them with requisite communication skills to make their personal contribution to successful innovation.
