Simplicity is sophistication:
Excerpt: "Everything now is geared toward simplicity. Writing for our audiences on the web? Well, for many of us creating content at colleges and universities, the words on our websites aren't always so straightforward. With so many stakeholders and audiences to please, we are still afraid parents will find grammatical errors than we are that our message is understood. We imagine that the dense (and sometimes opaque) language we use, not the stories we tell, defines the quality of our institution."
