It's not just your sister, Craig.
Have you noticed that most people today do not read?
Objectively speaking, they don't have less time than people in previous
generations. However, they fill up their time with other things. They have
raised "killing time" to an art.
It makes tech writing very frustrating. If people are not going to read what
we write, then who is our audience?
