Google's Matt Cutts: Content Clarity Over Technical Content

There is an excellent video from Google's Matt Cutts on the question Should I focus on clarity or jargon when writing content? The short answer is focus on clarity over jargon.

If you can't explain the topic to a novice, then the reader likely won't be able to understand your content. Best case, start off explaining it in simple terms and get more technical as you go. But if you had to pick, it seems Matt is saying content clarity is more important over detailed technical and scientific content, in most cases.
