No I ain’t a professional designer (no stop, I’m not…!) and I don’t work entirely in the web domain, but I’m gonna stand up for my profession – Technical Communications. We are the people who write the documentation. We are the people who write the online help. We are the people who long to be software developers or web designers. Actually strike that last bit…

Usability, design, writing skills (grammar, consistency etc) and the ability to analysis information from widely differing sources and present all this to users of software and services. Easy huh. Makes this web coding business look like a walk in the park.
