What is Technical Communication?

What exactly is Technical Communication? To answer that question I like to borrow a term from the ancient Greeks - techné. I interpret techné as the art or craft of making something. In this sense, technical communication isn't just communicating about technology, or using technology to communicate, it is the art or craft of communicating effectively. Yes, technology and tools are a part of this, but the core element is the strategic craftsmanship involved in creating communication that responds to the needs of a particular situation.
