Andy Oram, an editor at O'Reilly, has a few thoughts on the future of documentation, including the value of community efforts such as mailing lists, wikis, discussion boards, newsgroups, and such.  I must say that I've found discussion forums to be quite valuable, especially the ones on Apple's support site. I have found answers readily, or at least pointers to answers, that I would never have found in more traditional documentation. Andy also argues persuasively that big dead-tree books have limited utility in a world of rapid change.
