The internet and instruction manuals

The internet appears to be the death of instructions manuals. In the old days I used to find that an instruction manual with a good index was key to learning anything. Forget classes. Just give me the device and the manual and leave me alone.
The driver behind the death of the instruction manual is the same one that leads grocery stores to move product locations around; they aren’t concerned with your convenience, your positive experience or a friendly relationship. They are adversarial and only want to empty your wallet. When we cease being customers and become commodities we enter the netherworld of factory farming. The pretense of friendliness and offers of help are ironic; an algorithm drives every interaction, its intention to pluck as many feathers as possible without driving you away.
