Spending most of this week taking tree-structured explanations, and generating something approximating a series of paragraphs, then annotating them with cross references like a graph for navigation purposes. The result is persuasive for my target audience. An explanation that they can read and understand and navigated easily is a big deal for demonstration purposes. But I am hating it, because it is technologically trivial. Any tips for getting through the slog of actually doing the thing that is time consuming, valuable, but uninspiring?
