I'd decided to not use the first person at all in TDPL, but now I find
myself a bit constrained by that decision. I personally think a small
amount of meta-references and asides prevents boredom and brings a more
personal note to the communication, but such devices should be used very
sparingly and with care.
So I thought I'd ask a candid question in here. How do you feel about
moderate use of the first person in a technical book? Do you find it
comfortable, neutral, or cringeworthy?
