Writing Style for Print vs. Web: Jakob Nielsen waxes philosophical on the differences between writing for the Web and print. And praises the campfire and books as superior learning media.


    Linear vs. non-linear.
    Author-driven vs. reader-driven.
    Storytelling vs. ruthless pursuit of actionable content.
    Anecdotal examples vs. comprehensive data.
    Sentences vs. fragments.
