The Online SIG has a long and distinguished history, and is ready to embark on its next phase. The members will soon be asked to respond to a survey about what the focus ought to be. What would you like to see from STC's Online SIG? Is there an area of interest to you, where you'd like to learn more in collaboration with others? What are your ideas?
However, in conjunction with that, I am personally very interested in discussing the community aspect of technical communication. With the explosion of social networking tools like blogging and twitter and the altruistic nature of sharing knowledge, the future of technical documentation is unique. Would an online help community where users and clients answer questions still have a place for a technical communications expert? Where do we fit in and how do we keep ourselves relevant?
Those are just a few of my current interests in relation to online technical communication.
