Yes, or encouraging people to contribute to HowTos, wikis, the Linux
Documentation Project (which seems rather moribund at this point), and such.
BTW, write to google--you might get them interested in a SOD project--or some
other "flush" organization--maybe Amazon??
I avoid Google!
Having a strong preference for brick-n-mortar I've never had any contact
with Amazon. Do they have any history of involvement in tech issues?
On a mailing list of an Oregon LUG, I once suggested that high school
English teachers include tech writing as a possible assignment. Back in
my day shop classes (woodworking, metal shop, auto mechanics) were used
as motivation to stay in school - education being the desired side
effect. Students today are fascinated with computers - a similar
approach might be worthwhile. Also students with writing talent might be
attracted to tech writing.
