Was easier for me to read.
The article would be a less onerous read if the web designer had a basic understanding of typesetting. I will give him a hint.
- Use a serif font. Sans serif fonts are ok for captions not sentences.
- Make your writing black on white since it's easier to read. Not grey on white
- Have white space margins to the left and right of your web page. Again easier to read.
- The PDF and Digital copies are ok but a little thought could make them much more readable. As an example do one column or if you really need columns then two. Having three columns smacks of trying to be "arty" or "newspaperish" and not in a good way.
To me it appears that the writer has gone out of his way to make the article difficult to read. However I do find the article an interesting read.
