Allow me to be direct in saying that in the textbook, “Technical Writing 101” by Pringle and O’Keffe there are many inconsistencies pertaining to the concepts presented in the book and the modern world we live in today. The book is taking on a tone that this writing MUST be executed in a certain way for a technical publishing to be successful. I find that the authoritative angle on technical writing with today’s audience falls on deaf’s ear. The book fails to consider the various methods and presentations technical writing. As a matter of fact the book should be renamed “Technical Media 101”.
Both authors and editors can no longer ignore the obvious in believing that designers, developers, and the so called experts require the advice from the commoner, who not only has all the resources available as do the experts, but also harbors the view of an outsider which can be most valuable.
Please take a deeper look into revising your text to fit a more diverse, forever changing, more knowledgeable, more discerning audience.
