Communication is what it does! And what it does is what we want it to do. There is a fundamental human intent to impress others and get the desired feedback from them. All this happens via communication. Now, what we make out of Communication is the question that keeps a lot of focus here.
I am sure we all remember the good old school days, the classes where we kept our eyes wide open, stared at the chalkboard or the whiteboard on which the ‘great teacher’ painted knowledge. The ‘notes were checked-the notes were made.’ We also recall that these ‘rough’ copies were so personal to us, like diaries, that we were sometimes reluctant to share.
There is one important aspect in all languages: Spellings and this is perilous as we have forgotten the art of Correct Spellings. There was a time, a few decades back only when accuracy in spellings was the criteria of being linguistically qualified.
Sometimes we may not assume in the beginning, how much possibility a topic of discussion carries with it; we realise it later when the collective knowledge reaches a level of acknowledgement.

The collection you make, based on your observations, must be a smart one to re-visit.
Writing for the Web or Web-based Writing is the most developed form of writing these days. There are certain important things to keep in mind when you write for the Screen, not the pages. All writing, whether it is in literature or research or academics, is online. People read online on their devices.
