Technical Writing — Wearables Whitepaper
NXP, a global semiconductor company, creates hardware and software solutions for popular, cutting-edge technology, including wearables such as smart watches and ID cards for identification and logistics applications. Congress is interested in exploring the ethical and practical applications of this technology, and several NXP representatives were invited to a Congressional hearing to discuss the topic further. A rough draft of the whitepaper came to me for edits, but after I read the document I contacted the NXP executive in charge of the project and expressed my concerns about the whitepaper’s structure. I interviewed him over the phone and rewrote the whitepaper for the hearing.
