Jason, well done man. I downloaded the pdf version to take to a photo teacher I know so she can use it in her classes. She does make recommendations that you pointed out in terms of chemistry and paper. The classes don't get too much into different lenses and such, but it's good info in case the students want to pursue film further. Also, for what it's worth, the newbs are just being victims of advertising to some extent - that's not a total excuse, but sales is sales and if it confuses the newb, well, the sale has been made anyway - that's how I eventually saw it when I was paper-hopping/developer-hopping, and all those other gyrations. Simplify and standardize was something I learned working with steel, and it carried over to film. Sounds weird, I know, but it's true.
