In the future – 2073, to be precise – will people still need to read procedures? Will they still have to read instruction sheets to put their furniture – or their spaceships? Will they still need to look stuff up?

Michael A. Burstein, a long-time member of SFWA, will share his ideas at the October meeting and webinar of the New England Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication. Burstein has a Master’s in Physics and has published frequently in Analog magazine. He is a winner of the Campbell Award and a frequent Hugo and Nebula nominee for his short fiction.

A panel of seasoned technical communicators will respond:

Neil Perlin—A tech comm consultant with 20+ years’ experience, Neil is undaunted by any technical challenge, including the latest demands for mobile technical documents. His webinars and presentations on the theme “Beyond the Bleeding Edge” always bring technical writing up to the minute.

Marguerite Krupp—A technical writer, editor, and manager with many years’ experience, a Fellow of the Society for Technical Communication, Marguerite brings long experience, depth of understanding, and a great sense of humor to the challenges and changes of technical communication.

Steve Greffenius—A technical communicator with wide-ranging technical experience, who has held the full range of professional roles from writer to manager to STC New England President, Steve brings curiosity and insight to possibilities we can only glimpse now.
