The Curse Of Knowledge

What's the curse of knowledge?

It's using jargon instead of language that a client understands.

Eg a sales pitch to a band: "I'm going to market you"

The problem with that is it has connotations of selling out being sleazy.

It would be much better to say: "I can get you more paid gigs"

It's an easy trap to fall into when you are a web developer.

Here at Onsitenow we try and speak in plain English, and if you don't understand anything we say, please, please let us know.
