Do you disagree on the basis of:
- Having created information yourself?
- Knowing of another technical communicator having done so?
- Inferring from other evidence that technical communicators can do so?

I would think that if you and this reader can agree on what it means
to "create information" and you can then point to a case of a
technical communicator having done so, the matter ends right there,
no?
