Nice explanation. My only concern is that by the opening statement "aiming low". It makes it difficult to send this article to people without them justifiably rejecting it out of hand as a patronizing act. When the intention for aim low is truly noble, perhaps it is just as accurately described as writing clearly, writing for non-experts, or maybe even just writing an "introduction".

Good point. I changed "to aim low" to "to summarize basic material".
