The idea being to prove to clients that you can have mega wow factor… without the bloat.

I honestly don’t think many clients care about this. And I think it could backfire.

The idea that you are somehow doing it better than ex. Nike, could be perceived as cocky or just not important to the client. Clearly if it’s good for Nike, it’s good for me.

I think it could be a cool tool we as developers can get geeky about, but as a client I might be put off by it or it’s possible it might leave me confused. Clients want to be reassured. Leave any possible confusion out.
