Subject: Re: [dita] DITA for Technical Content

I could support the singular form ("DITA for Technical Communication").

I believe the singular form is appropriate and defensible. Here "communication" is "information communicated : information transmitted" (source: Merriam-Webster), not individual instances of communication.

I am not convinced that we need to rename DITA for Technical Content. But, if so, I would rather not get too specific. Perhaps a minor shift in the name might be better such as "DITA for Technical Communications."

Best regards,

Kris reminded me of the action item concerning a new name for DITA for Technical Content. As I look through the various domains, it seems a n odd mix, but it leans heavily toward procedural and programming semantics. So I'd like to recommend something that falls in those lines: DITA Procedure and Programming Specialization.
