John Posada wrote the following in January 2003:

Some people that some people think there is a "Holy
Grail" of technical writing. 99% of this process is:
1) Get some stuff on paper.
2) Get someone to read it and believe it is better
than they could have done.
3) Apply some styles, fonts, and hyperlinks.
4) Get it out the door.
5) Get more stuff.
6) Repeat from step one until they don't need you
anymore or you run out of stuff.
Did I miss anything?

I suppose that "Dig" could be a precursor to step 1...
