The four-part watercooler chat series "Managing Documentation Projects in a Collaborative World - New Best Practices for Editors" has now concluded.
The series consisted of four community discussions, which addressed topics relating to Web 2.0, Agile mindset and procedures, and Agile tools and their features.
These chats provided all participants with opportunities to examine the state of the art.
The first two chats were led by fellow Technical Editing SIG member Larry Kunz (who is an STC Fellow). In fact, Larry plans to "...incorporate some of the ideas from the chats into my 2011 Summit presentation, Documentation in a Collaborative World: What We've Learned. That presentation will summarize ideas and best practices that have come from a number of different sources over the past year -- including the September SIG quarterly meeting and the watercooler chats." (See http://www.softconference.com/stc/sessionDetail.asp?SID=231704.)
Thank you Larry for inspiring this series and for leading these!
The second two chats were unmoderated events, with more of a freestyle quality, that were great for talking about the subject at hand with our peers. We want to thank all of the participants, who shared their curiosity, insight, and experience.
