Don't worry, the writing of those documents will be automated in the future. I've heard manual labor is on its way out.

More civilizations might do well to emulate the long-vanished aliens in Poseidon's Wake where (I promise this doesn't spoil much of the book) the fantastical artifact everyone is fighting for access to turns out to be the manual.

Also The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks, wherein the MacGuffin is possibly a user's manual for a Really Important Thing (if either of them exist).

Because it's recent, and this happens to be the week when Hugo nominations close?

It's from Binti: Home, and I'm guessing Tor used it because OGH discussed Binti: Home in the article.
