What an engaging piece, +Joe Pairman! For someone who stuck it out as a Lit major, the "death of the author" has been instructive in interpreting texts from other frames. This death is the death of authorial ego, of meaning from a monolithic voice. 

Tech comm ultimately benefits from this shift to reader/user-orientation. The purposive "design" of language (which I guess is part of Marcia's "Word Up" thesis - would check out her book) to anticipate and respond to reader needs is a compromise/concession from an author (us corporate pens) who no longer has claim as sole authority. Rephrasing what you've said, the Web with its fragmented, multifarious information sources is a return to the collaborative, non-bylined Epic. 

Tech comm rolling up its sleeves to wear the hat of a "user advocate" is a much better proposition than one of an "indisputable fount of wisdom". After all, another dictum from postmodern lit theory is "all reading is rewriting".
