One of the clear pieces of feedback I got on my recent post on productivity is that good, solid documentation for the platform is crucial.  Would you like to be part of making the BCL docs better?  I just found out that we have an opening for a Programmer Writer on the BCL\CLR team.   Come join the team.  Contact Matt (remove the “nospam” from his email address below) or submit your resume on the career’s site.
