You have given me a promotion!

"Guy Haas - Heads Tech writing division at Selectica - http://swexegete.typepad.com/GuysBlog/"

We do not have a tech writing division.
I am one of a team of 8 writers at Selectica HQ in Silicon Valley. We also have one writer in our Pune office. I am one of the two most senior writers on the team, but I avoid doing management whenever possible.

Mine's more FrameMaker related than tech writing related, but I have one on my site, too.
