It’s going to be simple. Simple in a great kind of way.
Easy to understand.
Clean – lotta white space. Easy on the eyes. Easier on the vocabularly.

Feedback. And more feedback.
Edits on steroids mixed with powerful laxatives.

Detailed explanations that rival the complexity of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity (not his General theory of relativity – I know the difference).

Depends on your perspective.
It’s all about Perspective.
