The Society for Technical Communication welcomes you to its newest publication: STC's Notebook. This blog will house relevant information for STC members and those interested in technical communication. New stories and articles will be added frequently and the blog will grow and change to meet the Society's needs. The blog will replace News & Notes, but all of the articles historically captured in the newsletter will now be posted in a timelier manner to ensure up-to-date information delivery. STC's Notebook will function as a consistent stream of information about and for the Society. Please feel free to comment on posts and participate in this social media platform. Visit STC's Notebook for upcoming articles and posts, and be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed to receive notices of new blog postings: http://notebook.stc.org/.
The Technical Editing SIG renamed its scholarship as the Diane Feldman Technical Editing SIG Scholarship.
The scholarship is named in honor of a dear friend of the SIG, Diane Feldman. Diane Feldman is an Associate Fellow of STC and was the manager of the Technical Editing SIG for 7 years. Her exceptional leadership, selfless contributions, and enthusiasm for the SIG and the technical editing profession helped the SIG pull through society changes, managed to successfully re-charter and re-focus the SIG, and ultimately initiated a thriving and growing SIG. She mentored many of the SIG leaders throughout their tenures, leaving a lasting mark on those leaders and their careers.
Congratulations to the winners of the Scholarship 2009 Society for Technical Communication Technical Editing Special Interest Group scholarships!

The latest newsletter article, Editing for the Next Generation of Readers, has been posted to our new Web site.
This article was originally published in Technically Write, the newsletter of the Lonestar Community. It is reprinted here with permission.
I have subscribed to the e-newsletter from the Center for Information-Development Management (CIDM) for some time now. In their latest issue, at the end of one of their articles, they (in the spirit of social computing) encouraged me to comment on the article in their new CIDM blog: http://cidmblog.com/.
As I explored the new blog, I was quite excited to see that they have sectioned it into different topic areas, one of which is Editing Issues! Other areas include DITA, Management, Metrics, Tools, and Writing Green.
To entice you, you should read JoAnn Hackos’ post on whether stem sentences are needed to introduce task steps.
I have now subscribed (via RSS) to this blog, and I am looking forward to keeping up on the postings in this new community. Check it out!
