    Note: This post was originally published, in a slightly different form, here. When working in a corporate environment, either as a contractor or a full-time employee, you’ll have to go through a document review sooner or later. And the whole process can be quite painful and quite frustrating. Regardless of what you’re writing — whether it’s documentation, marketing or communications copy, or policy and procedures — a review is important. Make that important. Not only does it give people with specialized knowledge a chance to help you improve what you’re…

    How do top organizations communicate?Seventy-one percent of high-performing organizations focus their messaging on audience’s point of view. Just 45% of average organizations do.Why did the communicator cross the road? To get to the reader’s side.Or so says Stephen Welch, president of IABC UK and an independent consultant.Welch worked with Michael Ambjorn, director-at-large at NearDesk, to develop a benchmarking database that correlates communication practices with organizational performance.

    Although Wikipedia may not be a perfectly authoritative source for research, it is still an incredibly useful resource if you’re aware of its limitations. It’s also a very deep resource with many features that most people never touch. Gizmodo has published 10 tips that will help you master Wikipedia. For example, I didn’t know you could do this: 1. Create ebooks and PDFs for offline reading Wikipedia has a built-in Book Creator tool that you can take advantage of to export content to use on other devices or when you’re offline.

  • How to track textual input with Google Analytics

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:32 am
    This week an analytics ninja showed me how to use Google Analytics to track the values entered into a text field. It comes down to sending a dummy page name to Google Analytics, containing the value entered into the field. Google Analytics faithfully records a “page view” for that value, which you can then see in the analytics reports in the same way that you can see any other page view. Magic. For example, let’s say you have a search box on a documentation page, allowing readers to search a subset of the documentation.  It would be nice to track the most…

    Hallo fellow techcomm folks! Do you have a hobby? Mine is fairly pedestrian. I like to go walking in the bush. It blows away the cobwebs. Well, actually, I often have to blow away the cobwebs myself. They festoon the pathways in the early morning. It’s best to keep your mouth closed when strolling in the Australian bush, or you’ll find yourself spitting spiders. Sometimes a bird pops out and does something interesting, and I blog about it. Of a dark winter’s eve I can perchance be found tickling the ivories. Perhaps significantly, other members of the household are usually to be…

    Rip. Shred. Tear. Let’s gather up the obstacles to documentation contribution and tear them down one by one.

    I’m well past the three year mark, working on a new open source project that grows and grows every six months. I’ve been working closely with Diane Fleming at Rackspace to focus completely on upstream OpenStack. Upstream means that all of our documentation work goes to the open source project itself. So while Rackspace runs OpenStack in production and for our customers private clouds, Diane and I focus on documentation that helps any organization run and use OpenStack. We have put together an outline of what we do to make upstream OpenStack documentation better all the time.

    by Kevin Siegel    If you have created a Captivate project and need to reuse a slide in another project, all you need to do is right-click the slide on the Filmstrip, choose the Copy menu item, switch to another (or new) Captivate project, and paste. Copying slides between projects gets a bit complicated if the two projects are not the same size. For instance, the original project size is 1024x768. The other project is 825x675. When copying and pasting the slides between projects, larger slides pasted into smaller projects will likely get cropped; smaller slides pasted into…

    Our devices are getting smarter. Shouldn't our documentation do the same? One of the greatest problems manufacturers face is teaching consumers how to use their products. As I mentioned in a previous post, 95 percent of devices returned to stores actually work. That's a serious pain point and expense for manufacturers. Smart phones, tablets, and other computer-like devices are naturally moving in the direction of simple, digital instructions for setup. For example, I recently purchased a Kindle tablet for my family. The device guided me through the setup process one step at a time. It was…
  • Technophobia, and other reasons consumers won't read the manual

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:18 am
    Fear is a powerful motivator. But it can be downright dangerous when it deters consumers from understanding how to use technology in a safe manner. Plato said it best... "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." This is as true in technical communication as it is in philosophy; there are dangers to not understanding things that can be understood if we make an effort. However, as documented in this post from Engadget, "95 percent of returned gadgets still work and Americans don't read manuals." Lets think about this…
  • Is this the oldest instruction manual ever? (Bet you can't guess what it's for!)

    4 Mar 2014 | 1:20 pm
    The humble instruction manual has a long history. Throughout time, technical writers have been plying their trade in a variety of industries, but without the clear job description we tout today. However, the lack of a formal job description in the field didn't stop them from writing fascinating instructions for others to follow. Early variations on instruction manuals include guides on witch hunting, performing sacred services, and even wrestling. In fact, the earliest written guide to grappling dates back to nearly 100 A.D. The Greek text offers plenty of user friendly tips for throwing your…
  • Extracting metadata from multiple PDF documents

    22 Oct 2013 | 4:37 pm
    Adobe Acrobat allows you to add metadata to your PDFs, and the values you assign to these tags will be available for search engines and other services that rely on metadata. For example, you could add a value called "author" and assign the name of the document's author to that value. Also, Acrobat inserts system metadata values, such as the document creation date. But let's say you have a bunch of PDF documents, and you need a quick way to see what metadata they contain. Wouldn't it be great if you could generate a report? You can!

    Give a kid a mobile device and a wireless connection and throw a problem at them. Chances are they'll find a solution faster than most grownups. Why? Because of stagnation. We are creatures of habit. Therefore, the longer we live, the more stagnant our behavior becomes. We fall back on familiar ways, attempting to solve problems using old strategies that worked for us in the past. Adults use Google to find answers. Kids crowd-source them. Young people are still in the formative stage; their knowledge of how technology works is being built piece by piece from the deluge of information flowing…

    I’ve written before about some methods for getting the data in an Excel spreadsheet into Word (see the links below). Recently, one of my colleagues had a BIG Excel spreadsheet table (all text) that had to be inserted into a Word document.

Here’s one: They had no apostrophes in ‘Books’ or ‘Paperbacks’ (which is correct as they are plural forms), but somehow had thought it was necessary to add apostrophes to CDs and DVDs, which are also plurals. The error was bad enough, but the inconsistency was just as annoying. Further along in the store they had ‘Womens’ and ‘Mens’ as well as ‘Women’s Clothing’.

    Scott Nesbitt
    15 Jul 2014 | 7:03 am
    This post first appeared, in a slightly different form, here. Whether earned or not, many writers (technical or otherwise) have a reputation for not being good speakers or presenters. The stereotype is that people become writers so they don’t have to interact with others. They can just lock themselves away and pound on their keyboards to their heart’s content. I think that stereotype is unjustified. Sure, there are a number of those in our ranks who are introverts (I’m definitely one of them). But we all have something to teach or share. We all have a story to tell. A great…

  • Falcon 9R failure due to faulty sensor

    Keith
    29 Aug 2014 | 3:21 pm
    Last week’s explosive failure of a Falcon 9R test rocket was due to a sensor failure in one of the engines. The test vehicle didn’t contain the multiple sensor voting system used in the commercial Falcon 9 rocket. SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said in a statement Tuesday that the cause of the prototype rocket’s demise was a “blocked sensor port.” Garrett Reisman, who heads SpaceX’s effort to develop a private space taxi for NASA astronauts, said Wednesday that the investigation into the loss of the rocket testbed is not yet complete. “I can tell…
  • More on Iceland – eruption started

    Keith
    28 Aug 2014 | 3:16 pm
    Update: An eruption has started. Lava is clearly visible on a webcam. The situation in Iceland is getting worrisome. There are signs that magma is moving from the Bárðarbunga volcano to the Askja volcano. This means that both volcanoes could erupt. More information, and even more speculation, in the comments section. More worrisome is the possibility that deep magma may be forcing its way to the surface and that could lead to a much larger rift eruption that could spew huge amounts of haze-causing aerosols into the atmosphere. When Laki erupted in 1783, the Mississippi froze all the way to…
  • Complete Feynman physics lectures online

    Keith
    27 Aug 2014 | 3:23 am
    The complete Feynman lectures on physics are now online in a multi-device friendly HTML5 format. The three volumes cover the core of physics and although some topics, like quantum physics, have advanced quite a bit since Feynman gave the original lectures in the 1960s, they are still a landmark publication. Fair warning: to really understand these, you’ll need to know some calculus and algebra – first year university level should do for most of it. If you want to get a better idea of just how brilliant Feynman was as a teacher, you can also watch a series of lectures he gave at…
  • 10 tips to become a Wikipedia master

    Keith
    25 Aug 2014 | 2:15 am
    Although Wikipedia may not be a perfectly authoritative source for research, it is still an incredibly useful resource if you’re aware of its limitations. It’s also a very deep resource with many features that most people never touch. Gizmodo has published 10 tips that will help you master Wikipedia. For example, I didn’t know you could do this: 1. Create ebooks and PDFs for offline reading Wikipedia has a built-in Book Creator tool that you can take advantage of to export content to use on other devices or when you’re offline.

  • Iceland bears watching

    Keith
    20 Aug 2014 | 4:31 pm
    It seems that one of Iceland’s major volcanoes may be getting ready to erupt. There’s been a lot of seismic activity under Bardardunga, indicating that magma is on the move. This could mean an eruption is imminent, though the scale of such an eruption is difficult to predict. A worst-case scenario isn’t likely but could be really nasty. Icelandic authorities are taking the threat seriously: The Icelandic Weather OfficeVeður­stofa considers it likely that there will be an eruption in Bárðarbunga and has raised the the warning stage for air traffic from yellow to orange…

    Take for example this well-known sentence: וכל המרבה לספר ביציאת מצרים, הרי זה משובח The Hagaddah at chabad.org translates it \"and everyone who discusses the exodus from Egypt at length is praiseworthy.\" The הרי doesn\'t survive translation.  And a case could be made that it’s a mere expletive in the sentence, nothing to worry about.  But I think that it helps balance the short ending of the sentence against the long subject.Read more...

    by Kevin Siegel    If you have created a Captivate project and need to reuse a slide in another project, all you need to do is right-click the slide on the Filmstrip, choose the Copy menu item, switch to another (or new) Captivate project, and paste. Copying slides between projects gets a bit complicated if the two projects are not the same size. For instance, the original project size is 1024x768. The other project is 825x675. When copying and pasting the slides between projects, larger slides pasted into smaller projects will likely get cropped; smaller slides pasted into larger projects…
