I’m at the Writing Open Source Conference (jet-lag kicking in) with the other GNOME (and Ubuntu) guys, writing from the Ginger Press Library Cafe right now. First day has been very productive and interesting, chats are still going on here at the Cafe in front of some good beers and something to eat. Great people!
We started the day with a documentation license overview from the point of view of a (real) lawyer and how to work with licenses and the community involved in documentation writing. An absolute helpful talk about user-centered documentation design: absolutely great and insightful tips on how to organize the work on documentation, from start of implementation to the final product.
We also talked about fame, fortune and how to earn a living writing documentation. The final talks were about how people learn and how we can use this information when writing documentation (by Belinda Lopez from Canonical) and on documentation community.
A really really interesting day. Looking forward for tomorrow!
