My job here at Microsoft is a content publisher. This is a relatively new term to describe what I do. I'm not sure it is clear to people outside Microsoft, but that's okay. I like it a lot better than Programmer/Writer or Programming Writer or the other variants I've heard over the years.
Most of the time I've been at Microsoft, I've written technical documentation for various Software Development Kits (SDK). SDK is another more or less meaningless word (or acronym, I guess) to my father-in-law. When I get my hair cut and the stylist asks me what I do, I tell her I'm a writer. Then, I tell her I write documentation about software. That usually clears up the blank stares.
I intend to write about my job as a content publisher and the challenges of communicating technical material to people. I've done it for awhile. I like it. I like helping people become more informed about stuff.
I don't know if I'll be a frequent blogger, but I hope to be a regular blogger. I'll keep it short generally. I prefer that the meat of the discussion occur in the comments rather than in my initial discussion of a subject. I won't always succeed at both, but that's my intention.
Expect a little more about SDKs in the first postings.
