"You too can make a difference in the life of a programmer. For just 17
seconds a day - the time it takes to make a cup of coffee - you can help
broaden the mind of a programmer. I'm Sally Smothers, and I've seen
first-hand what a difference just a few seconds each day makes in the life
of a programmer. So please, open your hearts and your schedules and help a
programmer today. Remember, every programmer you help to become
documentation-focused today will help grow a stronger programming community
Sorry, but that original post sounded more like a call to action than a

Reader-Centered Approach by Paul V. Anderson (HBJ publishing).
