If tech writer job eliminations started over a decade ago, why does the number of tech writers continue to rise? Has the computerization of technical documentation stalled?

I think this projection is correct as far as it goes - which is not very far - but is both incomplete and not timely. The introduction of computerization to technical documentation started causing job eliminations over a decade ago.
