Thomas is a computer engineering professor whose main research area is network security and web applications. I first spent 6.5 years in the private sector where I was in charge of building one of the first, if not the
first use of a web application to control a large scale software application running on multiple many-node computer installations (late 1995, early 1996). I was also one of the senior architects of the multi-node application itself.
Communication is important, and a tutorial that people don't finish reading is not exactly useful. When I publish a paper in a conference or a journal, they send me an author kit which contains very precise formatting instructions. The journal or conference proceedings has a consistent style of presentation and is easy for others to read and retain the information. And in case you are wondering, I know that my research papers are read by people outside of academia as my papers have led to consulting contracts in industry and with government.
You can't just dump your ideas out into a mixed format web page. Well you can, but you drastically reduce your audience when you don't pay attention to basic formatting and presentation.
