OK, Jeff, I'll bite:

Technical communicators must provide accessible
information to their audience, who should then be able
to act appropriately based on that information.

Huh, my $15K didn't get me the same thing that yours
got you. At least the checks ended up in the same
place. ;-)

OK, here goes...

Technical communicators' goals should be to encode a message
and send it through a channel to a receiver, causing the
receiver to act on the message in a way that proves that
the message made it through the system with as little change
in intended meaning as possible.

I took out $15,000 in student loans for grad school just to
learn this. I sure hope I'm right.
