Product Overview

Stories, essays, and pictures about my experiences on the underside of technical writing. The events took place at Cardinal Associates and Burroughs from 1971 to 1981. To an outside observer things would have looked pretty tame, shaggy haired young people and serious seeming older people trying to make money and do significant work. However, as I note in Fear and Loathing With Bill and Tom in NYC, which happened in the 1973, beneath the surface it was a freak show. The young people, and some of those who werent so young, were living out scripts that could have been penned by Hunter Thompson and Carlos Castaneda. It was all fear and loathing, paranoia and rock and roll - 60s redux stuff. What made it worse was the fact that we were doing technical writing. An artifact of 20th century complexity, the profession can be a cruel place for those with fragile minds. We were like stoned pigs, rooting for truffles of order in a forest of complexity and ambiguity. The forest is still there, but we are gone. *Author: Weathers, Tom *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 114 *Publication Date: 2009/09/25 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.02 x 5.98 x 0.27 inches
