  1. What a joy to find someone else who thinks this way.

  2. The very crux of your writing while sounding reasonable in the beginning, did not work very well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely be fascinated.

  3. There is, IMNSHO, the rule of the Four Cs that apply to all technical wrnitig — to all business wrnitig in fact: Clear, Complete, Concise, and Correct. If your wrnitig meets this rule and is friendly and easy to read, then you have succeeded.Turning a noun into verb by adding ‘ize’ to the end of it does not cut it. Neither does stringing lots of stilted words together so that your reader has to practically sit there with a pencil trying to diagram your sentence to make any sense of it.Clear, concise, correct, complete, and written in a friendly voioce makes for the best business wrnitig.In fact, most business people I know do not have the time to read long wordy documents and will sooner ignore what you have to say than fight their way through excessive verboseness. Some time ago I wrote ago a number of shirt pocket tech notes for various business communities in my company. They became very popular and I was asked to write a number of them because they were very concise, easy to read, and friendly (written at the reader’s level). Try distilling a discussion of “snapshot too old” along with diagrams and how to avoid it into four or five columns of one sheet of landscaped letter size paper. Do that for a few subjects like “Key Preservation and Table-to-Table Update”, NAS Vs. SAN, N-Tier architecture, Automatic inventory replenishment, and so forth. You will learn very quickly how to be Clear, concise, complete, and correct.

  4. I read your post and wished I was good enough to write it
