heh. i knew you’d make the CARBON related comment…
Not at all. When you write for the masses, you will inevitably run into the problem of considering who potentially doesn’t understand what and have to express it simple enough so they get it, leaving behind all those who actually have an attention span surpassing the 30sec mark, and who have the ability to understand complex problems. the thing, when catering to the intelligent, is that the intelligent work for you by spreading the knowledge to those who have a harder time grasping it.
Not trying to insult anyone. I’m trying to say that your freedom increases when you write for those who have it easier to understand complex problems, because they can explain them. otoh, trying tk write for those who have it harder rarely actually achieves anything, except a loss of quality in your post.
there will still be people who don’t get something, misinterpret something or complain, because it’s not written for idiots. anyhow, i don’t mean to steal your time and i’m not trying to tell you how you should do your “work”. i’m just trying to tell you a way that works well.
anyway… you’re a “politician” and the masses definitely aren’t made for grasping complex topics.
sorry for stealing your time.
PS: i’d read it. the more complex, the better.
