A CDE Definition
The very first time someone reads something they never read before. With regard to technical documentation and dictionary definitions in this industry, first-time readers are even more neglected than first-time users of actual applications. The text is rarely "tested" by people actually reading the material, who have never used the app or have no knowledge of the concept being explained. See first-time user and RTFM.
