Nicky Bleiel is the guest editor of the final issue of Intercom for 2016, and she has become quite the expert at the art of the interview. In this issue themed “Legends of Technical Communication,” she has put together a collection of interviews with industry legends and tech comm gurus.
Nicky has over 20 years of experience in technical communication; writing and developing information for software products in the cognitive computing, technical publication, media sales, industrial automation, simulation, and pharmaceutical industries. In her work, she focuses on providing content that improves the user experience, and she has developed and delivered training classes, created videos and blogs, delivered webinars, and hosted a podcast series. With STC, she is an Associate Fellow and Past President. She is a frequent contributor to Intercom, as well as tcworld magazine, ISTC Communicator, and other publications. She is also a popular speaker at technical communication conferences.
My deepest appreciation to Nicky, who is a legend herself, and all the contributors—both interviewers and interviewees—who took part in this effort. What a fantastic issue this is.
