I was watching the news the other day and the reporter was discussing a report that had been released by the Malaysian governement concerning their plane lost at sea. The next story was about the April jobs report released by our government talking about how unemployment had gone down since March. Then it hit me…
Technical documents are everywhere!! I had never realized how many times a technical document is discussed on the news. I even got a glimpse inside the April jobs report from the government and saw that sure enough it was a proper technical document. It had different font sizes, blocks of information, graphs, and a cover page with a proper table of contents. All the good stuff found in a pristine technical document.
I don’t know why I was so surprised to discover that technical documents are important in our world, I had just never thought of a report that governments release in that light before!
