Mark Dempsey asks:

Can anyone tell me the origins of this movement toward task-orientation in writing?

Tony Markatos responds:

Tom DeMarco wrote a very popular book on task-oriented technical communications back in the latter 70's.. Read 'Structured Systems Analysis and Specification' Tom DeMarco, Yourdon Press 1979.

(Note: technical communications do not have to be written; in fact, for software products, written communications are a poor form of communication - especially compared with effective graphics.)
