The reason I did it was that (even with JavaScript off, as I always try to do) the layout made it hard to know how far in the text I was, and jumping back and forth was accordingly painful. Also, the huge pictures and "emotional" style of the layout distracted me.

The drawback of the Github formatting is that the lines are a bit too long, and narrowing the window size doesn't fix that (there's something in the layout that forces a certain width). I could have put the page on my own server, but I thought it's nicer for people to have direct access to the Github features in case somebody wants to edit or annotate it, also "integrating" it into my own website may violate copyrights, whereas this might not (IANAL).
