Scripting News: My tech new years resolution.

A friend who is a reporter sent an email saying they’re looking for New Year resolutions from people in NY and in tech. Arrgh, I groaned out loud. I’ll never come up with anything. So I put it out of my mind.

Then trolling Twitter thinking about doing something fun with a couple of hours free time this morning, I came across a tweet from Paul Ford, a New York tech guy who also happens to be an excellent published writer. He also makes a living writing docs about XML and scripting, and other technical topics. He occupies a unique cell in my brain. A techie who is also literate.

Every time his name pops up in my feed I think — Man I wish there was a project I could do with this guy. Then I thought back to the question my reporter friend asked. And I had my opportunity.

Thus, my resolution for the New Year is: I will do what I can to make tech writing more literate.
