Matt Danda (dandam -at- 1stnet -dot- net) reminds us of an excellent point:

One way you can remind them is to offer to take over some of the writing
portions of their jobs. They will love you.

Yes, we all have too much to do already. But if you take over writing stuff
you'd have to blend into documentation later *anyway*, you not only ensure
the quality of that material, but you can probably write and/or format the
material for easy inclusion in your documentation.

Worked for me once, anyway. A whole staff of programmers lay at my feet,
spreading rose petals everywhere I went.
