Program Summary

Help us celebrate the 60th Anniversary of STC with a fun and thought-provoking look into the future.

Look into the Future!

Come for an evening of imagination and fun! We'll briefly review the world of tech writing in 1953, brush lightly on 2013, and spend the bulk of our time considering the possibilities of 2073.
How will our jobs be different then? How will they be the same? (Will it be any easier to get SMEs to review our draft?)

Join us for a look into the future with science fiction author Michael Burstein, and a panel of creative and curious tech writers. No stranger to technical communication, Michael knows our professional world well, since he is married to a tech writer and is a science textbook writer himself.

A little about MichaelMichael A. Burstein

Michael Burstein holds degrees in Physics (BS Harvard 1991 and MS Boston University '93) but he doesn't spend all his time trapped within Earth's gravity-well. He was the John W. Campbell Best New Writer at the 1997 World Science Fiction Convention, and he has published many stories in Analog and elsewhere.
