Nancy Ott wonders about Negroponte's predictions for the
future of technical writers, but agrees "we are already seeing the
shift from paper to online delivery of information"

Quite, Nancy! Here's a quote from Microsoft's ad for "Bob"
in the latest edition of WIRED -

"Bob has personal guides - on screen animated characters - that
lead you every step of the way. In fact, Bob is so easy to use,
it doesn't even come with a manual. No manual. How easy can you get?"

[btw - shouldn't that be "on-screen"?]
