: New: Presentation: Tech Writing for non-Tech Writers

I'm a rara avis at Twitter, the only full-time technical writer. As such, my life is that of a celebrity: I'm constantly being invited to events, everybody wants to be seen with me, etc etc. At least, that's the only reason I can think of that one engineering group asked me to present a presentation about technical writing, a presentation aimed at non-technical writers.

So I put together Documentation: Threat or Menace? It's a presentation. It's a Bootstrap front end. It might or might not make sense without me there to explain the words on the slides. (I try to avoid putting too many words on the slides; they force the audience to sit and read slides instead of looking at my handsome face and basking in the glow of my celebrity.) If your development group's wiki could use some raking, this presentation might help. The slides aren't even Twitter-specific; or else I would have felt nervous about posting it out here on teh internets.

(I want to put together a better Bootstrap-backed presentation; I didn't want the list bullets to halfway disappear off the left edge of the screen like that. But at the same time I didn't want to be one of those people who obsesses over their presentations for hours and hours. And that's kinda how it was going since I was learning Bootstrap and jQuery and... Aw, you know how it goes.)
