The Ridiculous Jobs Of The Digital Economy, Illustrated As Children's Book Characters | Ariel Schwartz | FastCoExist | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

The white male venture capitalist, the overpaid programming intern, the corporate social responsibility specialist: if you work at a corporate or tech startup job, you probably know these people. What you probably don't know is what these people would look like as Richard Scarry-inspired illustrated animals.

With apologies to Richard Scarry."

'For starters, once you really take a look at Snapchat, you realize that most of your preconceived notions of the mobile app are false. There are really creative individuals and organizations making some pretty compelling stories on Snapchat, and watching a story on Snapchat is less passive than you may think. When you are watching a story, you have to hold your finger down on the screen.'
