A couple of years ago, I wrote an article for Intercom magazine called Ten Tips for Writing Whitepapers (PDF). I just had a quick glance through it, and I think every thing's still relevant. Regardless, my technical writer brother sent me two other articles on writing whitepapers. There's 10 tips for writing compelling white papers and How to Write a White Paper � A White Paper on White Papers. The latter requires registration, and apparently the registrations get vetted before you receive their article. In light of the fact that I used my spam account at Capulet (a company that, you know, writes whitepapers), I'm unlikely to receive a copy. If anybody else registers and gets a copy, send it on to me, would you?
