The most simplified form of documentation is going to
be the Ikea-style visual doc. It will have cutout
figures assembling furniture perfectly on the first
try, omitting the sweating and swearing and trying to
figure out which end of flat board "A" mates to
spindle "D."

Either that, or we'll all use PowerPoint.

All that saves us from this future... is quality
technical writing.
