The adoption of reflection into main-stream programming tools and languages over the last six or seven years gave developers almost telepathic powers, allowing us to instantly understand any object without having to read through 200 pages of boring manuals. Code insight, instellisense, class browser, or whatever the feature is called in your favourite IDE, started as a helpful utility but has now almost completely replaced API documentation. Most developers simply do not read supporting documents at all any more.

This puts a lot more pressure on the API and it's authors - not only should it cover all required functionality, but it must also be intuitive to use. We must acknowledge and understand the effects of those tools in order to make our APIs better.
