What's a Little Nothing? A Little Nothing is a paragraph that pretends to give information, but doesn't. It hints, it alludes, it implies, it offers factoids, but it never gives you the information you need. Instead, it quietly screams I DON'T WANT TO TELL YOU. When you come across technical writing that's coy and requires you to play guessing-games, you've come across a Little Nothing.
