" But in books like DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web, Excel Data Analysis, Illustrator, and even The Rough Guide to MySpace & Online Communities , humor and joking did not find a place. by Jennie Ruby What role, if any, should humor play in technical and training materials? When writing training materials, I am always looking for new ways to introduce a lesson and keep the tone engaging.

You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
