This year’s Technical Communication Summit began with the announcement that the society has returned to financial health after a year of intense crisis. This upbeat news set the tone and the mood for the conference, where many ideas of content strategy, put forward during STC France’s CS Forum 10 were reiterated and elaborated, together with excellent sessions on usability and other related subjects. Read on for more information about society leadership, the main themes of the conference, and our award.
This year’s STC Technical Communications Summit 2010 was held in Dallas, Texas, USA. Try as I might, I was unable to catch any glimpse of JR Ewing or his family, however (here, you are intended to smile…).
Overall, the mood of the conference was much more positive and upbeat than last year, as the society has weathered its own financial crisis and is now back in reasonable financial shape.
As far as I could tell, Europe was under-represented this year. Besides myself, I was aware of two people from Sweden (STC TransAlpine Chapter) who kept a low profile, and Monika Duvinage from the France chapter. The STC UK and Ireland Chapter was represented by new president David Hollis and past president Ant Davey.
