(4:27:21 PM) Me: this is awesome
(4:27:35 PM) faboo: you in a small white box?
(4:27:36 PM) faboo: a guess
(4:27:42 PM) Me: not really
(4:28:19 PM) Me: so, have I mentioned that Ed (austin boss) has hired this group and a few others to startup the austin call center?
(4:29:48 PM) faboo: nice :)
(4:29:59 PM) Me: well its true
(4:30:18 PM) Me: anyways, one of the guys called me up after I mentioned that the standing plan was to shut down the nyc office in a few months
(4:30:34 PM) Me: and asked for my resume for embedded work and help file development
(4:30:50 PM) faboo: most rock and roll
(4:30:53 PM) Me: (he works in this rapid prototyping group)(
(4:31:52 PM) faboo: most nifty
(4:32:48 PM) Me: he offered me a project
(4:34:18 PM) faboo: so, you know this guy pretty well? or does he just realize how awesome you must be?
(4:34:34 PM) Me: both, I guess?
(4:34:59 PM) Me: its just rewriting the helpfiles for this online thing. should take 20-25 hrs, and he's expecting to pay me somewhere between 15-20/hr
(4:35:24 PM) Me: http://www.eventuality.com/
So, my question becomes, what is a resonable rate for freelance helpfile rewriting? And for technical writing, in general. (*cough*rosefox*cough*)
