This is akin to our statement here that if you don't do the documentation as you go, there will never be any documentation.

Documentation is for people who can't read code. Which is why I stare at stuff I've written just days before and ask the question: how/why does this work?.

The difference between a snippet of interesting code worth nothing, and a substantial investment in intellectual property is the amount and relevance of supporting documentation.
