Welcome to the STC Southern Nevada chapter blog!
Technical writers in the desert? Why, yes, of course!
As early as last month, August 2014, I knew next to nothing about content strategy, content marketing, and custom content. But on August 27, something happened — I attended a MadCap-hosted webinar by content strategist Mark Baker. Although Mark’s presentation focused on EPPO topic-based authoring, it opened the gateway to the world of content strategy. What is it? Let’s find out.
Earlier this week, John and I agreed to redirect the URL of our previous blog (http://stcnevada.com) to our new URL (http://stcnevada.wordpress.com). He was concerned about tying this loose end “so no potential visitor is left behind”. I agreed. So now, this domain redirection will remain in place “for a month or two” or whenever John decides to close the previous blog account. Cool, that’s done! But on a more amusing note…
Social media! First, let me start by giving my thanks again to Raf for organizing the Brooklyn Bowl bowling bash. I had a great time. But before the bowling festivities began, as we waited for bowlers to arrive, I also had a chance to speak to him about our new blog direction.
Brooklyn bowling! Just as planned — okay, maybe not quite as planned — the STC Southern Nevada chapter took a break from its monthly sedentary meetings to enjoy a refreshing round of bowling over the weekend. The date: 5:30 pm on Saturday, July 26, 2014. The site: Brooklyn Bowl at the LINQ Las Vegas!
For writers everywhere!
On January 29, a special message in our monthly email update caught my eye.
Yeah, I admit it, I’m a bit slow with the local technology news in Las Vegas. Maybe it’s the dry heat. :) But recently, when our STC chapter president, Kate, reminded me about her tour of Switch’s data center campus right here in town, I hurried to Switch’s website and was quickly hooked by their mind-boggling “cloud city” facilities, namely the Switch SuperNAPs.
