That's my nickle's worth.
That's fine. I suppose it all depends on who your audience is. There have been usability studies done about reading on the web, and due to the limitations of computer screens, most people prefer to use a combination of skimming/scanning on the web for information to avoid eyestrain. I have found it helpful for my eyes to print out Steve's articles when they are 20+ pages long. I get eyestrain reading for a long period of time, even when the language is relatively simple. So, it's not just an issue of not wanting to think. It's an issue of wanting to avoid physical pain. BTW, I'm only 28, and I have rather nice flat panel monitor, but it's still an issue.
