I donât disagree with the article, but itâs nothing new. Product documentation, particularly how-to documentation, will always shift in form. UX is still a growing field, and whether via long documents, short procedures, or smart/intelligible hints or UI design, an end user writerâs skills still come into play (though maybe not so much in the role of âwriterâ). But weâve had this conversation before, even in the late 1990s/early 2000s.
