What to Pick Poll

First sig­nif­i­cant TCOM assignment:
Tech­ni­cal Memo Report
Length: 2–3 pages (dou­ble-spaced)
You are to write a memo report on a prob­lem of your own choos­ing. That prob­lem should have “real world” rel­e­vance; it should per­tain to a work, school, or com­mu­ni­ty envi­ron­ment. Write your memo report to a super­vi­sor and describe a prob­lem that you think needs to be resolved. In your memo report, define the prob­lem care­ful­ly, note caus­es and effects, dis­cuss pos­si­ble solu­tions, and pro­vide a con­clu­sion. You may include oth­er parts if they are appro­pri­ate for your audi­ence. If a visu­al aid or table is appro­pri­ate, do include it.

I can think of any num­ber of top­ics per­tain­ing to tech­ni­cal or soft­ware issues. In fact, I have been mean­ing to address a par­tic­u­lar issue in a vol­un­teer orga­ni­za­tion for which I work. I prob­a­bly have sev­er­al pieces of email I’ve writ­ten for var­i­ous past jobs in my archives that could eas­i­ly be cleaned up and used for the assign­ment. But I rather like the idea of doing some­thing dif­fer­ent, but still “tech­ni­cal.”

I’m not the gam­ing geek, but I hap­pen to be (essen­tial­ly) mar­ried to one of the very biggest gam­ing geeks on the plan­et. I’m con­sid­er­ing writ­ing some­thing involv­ing game mechanics—it is unlike­ly that the pro­fes­sor will have received such a paper in the past. I cer­tain­ly haven’t writ­ten such a thing in the past.

So what top­ic should I pick?
