MIT Project Athena Technical Writer

Project Athena is a five year effort to integrate computing into
the undergraduate curriculum at MIT.  From giving the beginning
French student a fictitious Paris and then posing the problem,
"Find an apartment," to handing the electrical engineering student
a computer simulated antenna design kit and saying "Explore
magnetic fields," Athena wants to find ways to use the power of
networked, high-speed, personal graphics workstations to illuminate
concepts students encounter learning the sciences, engineering, and
humanities.  Athena's three major partners are MIT, DEC, and IBM.
We are using Berkeley 4.2 Unix as our base system.

Athena is looking for a Technical Writer.  As a member of Athena's
User Services group, this person will:

 - Write, edit, and produce user documentation, systems documentation,
   and public relations material.

 - Work with systems development personnel, and MIT faculty and staff
   to develop documentation standards and procedures to assure proper
   documentation of their projects.

 - Provide technical support to users including acting as an area
   expert for one or more software systems, answering user questions,
   and teaching short courses.

 - Participate in the maintenance, design, and implementation of online
   documentation systems.

 - Participate in the design, testing, and implementation of new Athena

To qualify for this job, you should:

 - Have a bachelor's degree or equivalent education and experience.

 - Have evidence of excellent written and verbal communications skills.

 - Have experience writing technical documentation for non-technical and
   technical users.

 - Be familiar with computer systems, screen editors, text formatters,
   graphics systems, one or more computer languages, online documentation
   systems, and networking concepts.

 - Have experience as a user and teacher of computer systems (in a
   university environment, if possible).

 - Be good natured, but tough.

Send resume and writing sample (both required) by U.S. MAIL to:

        Documentation Manager

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
