In this STC/Adobe interview, Paul Wlodarczyk maintains that you should be passionate about your audience. Think about what your readers are trying to. Are they trying to sell something or are they trying to save lives? You need to know the ROI of what you create from the user's perspective.
Joe Welinske shared keen insights in this area in another Adobe booth interview at STC Summit. "Unless you test your documentation, you have no idea whether it is useful or not.
