Almost every computing job requires technical writing.  Clear writing can make fair work look good, and clumsy writing can obfuscate great work.  This talk sketches some of the writing tasks that arise in a technical career, and the importance of graceful communication.  I will describe my personal transformation from a typical undergraduate technogeek who feared and loathed technical writing into aged technogeek who still fears writing but usually enjoys having written.

Refreshments will be available before the talk. Co-sponsored by the Department of Computer Science and the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric.
