Webcasts and the Tech Writer

I realized the other day what a great job Microsoft is doing of tapping the passion of its employees. I realized this while I was looking for some information about Live Communication Server, and I realized there was a live webcast in just 10 minutes.

As a tech writer, I don't like writing Web casts. I've written just about every other kind of content with relish. Whitepapers? Love 'em. Training? Any day. It's not that I'm intimidated by the level of technical knowledge required. In the past I've made myself into an expert on a product very rapidly if I've had to. It's that Webcasts, like blogging, require a certain kind of engagement with the technology.
